If you love peaty whisky from Islay, this whisky is real blast of real quality bottled at premium strength. Te whisky has been laying on a mix of American and European Oak refill casks, with concentrated peat and the characteristic. Be prepared that this will be an favourite.

The nose is very subtle, complex and fruity (pear or peach) with discrete peated hints on the background. In the palate, a very great mildness, despite its high degree of alcohol, a mix of ripe fruits, citrus on peated background, with very nice smoky touches. The impression of complex and refined smoothness is so great, that the nearly 60% of that marvelous bottle are immediately forgotten. A very nice finish, lingering, fruity and marine at the time, passing successively through slightly acid citrus notes and dry hints of peat. Moving alternatively to salted and sugared notes.

December 9th, 2009

Opened a bottle last night with my brother. A completely different beastie from the 18 (which did not suck) we had this summer. Best nose of any single malt I have ever tried. Full on the mouth, and just keeps going and going. Honey, smoke, caramel, and citrus on the palate. Jumps immediately to my Top Five:

21 Springbank
1964 Glen Grant
1979 Dallas Dhu
1982 Brora
25 Caol Ila

No particular order.
