Tasting notes

Lion's | 14-02-2013

From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: straw.

Nose: much straighter, crystal-clean peat and sea elements. Sea breeze, oysters, kelp… Then lemon juice, wet stones, freshly cut green apples. Hints of aniseed and dill. As pure and clean as possible.

Mouth: ultra-punchy but very drinkable at such high strength. Very close to the Samaroli in fact, just a tad purer. Please see above. With a little water: extraordinary notes of high-end marzipan, butter apples, smoked salmon, dozens of various crystallised fruits… And so on. One of the greatest, utterly brilliant, will send many Ardbegs/Laphroaigs/Lagavulin back to the Peat School. 96 points
