Tasting notes

From Whiskyfun.com

Colour: straw.

Nose: what a beautiful sharpness and what a beautiful minerality! Extremely elegant, zesty, flinty, waxy and mineral, with a profile that really resembles some Clynelishes’ (not all). Say, the best 1983’s for example. The peat takes off only after a few minutes, together with wood ashes, coal oven and hints of mint and eucalyptus. Ah, yes, and a little grapefruit. Truly grand!

Mouth: sweet but very nervous, with quite some peat, bitter oranges, liquorice and mint. Cough medicine. OBE staring to show off. Gets a little more peppery and citrusy (more oranges, tangerines, lemons.) A tad less complex than on the nose but still pretty stunning.

Finish: amazingly long at 43% ABV and after all these years in its bottle, even if it’s a bit ‘narrower’ at this point. 93 points.
