Aroma: sweet peat and spicy wood. Lemon, ash and ginger. Sweet barley and fresh wood polish and terpentine. Water makes it very ashy and smoky with hints of lemon.
Palate: salty, smoky, ashy and then bit sweet. Full of lemon and grass notes. With water: even more salt and lemon, then more or less the same. Finish: long, salty and ashy, with lemon peel, grapefruit and grass.
Comments: powerful and straigth into your face. Do I fell more peat than in a previous versions (167ppm)? I couldn't exactly confirm that. Just another grand young monster, full of grass. Bit to narrow to enjoy it regularly. I did enjoy much more a Caol Ila 8 year old I had recently.


The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
