N: I’m looking for similarities to the Stauning Rye and sure enough, there’s the waxiness and coppery savoury grain direction over the fruitiness.
T: Amazingly sophisticated for a 3 year old, and no STR in sight.
F: Young waxy, earthy and grainy-led. Sure it’s firmly peaty but the peat smoke is respectfully kept in the background.
C: Peat can be effective at hiding flaws in young whisky but there’s no evidence of that here. Impressive young stuff with a refreshingly unique profile.
