Simply "the best pure malt in the world" for Whisky Magazine!
Color: old gold with green highlights.
Nose: firm, lively. A mixture of frangipane, heady flowers (iris, honeysuckle), candied citrus (lemon, orange) and salt, it is particularly powerful. It evolves on vanilla, new oak and on menthol and herbaceous notes (fresh tobacco). Finally, the liquorice confines to the oily peat and the gentian gives it a pleasant bitterness.
Palate: soft, balanced. Placed forward, its spices (girofle, nutmeg) are growing in strength. Praline and dried fruits (almond, cashew nuts) calm his ardor. From now on, ripe fruits (pear, apple), vanilla and exotic fruits (pineapple, khaki) can be expressed freely. Citrus fruits have been soaked in sugar.
Final: long, tender. It is alanguit on freshly cut grass, badiane and green liquorice. Peat is just a memory. It is a gourmet, and extends to mocha, acacia honey and green mint. Its saline character gradually takes on the ascendancy.
A real concentration of pleasure.
