The second tasting partially confirmed the first one. However the dominant character of the acidity seems to much marked, that's why this bottle got a lower rating.

During the third tasting, this acidity was still present in the palate, but probably that tastes develops. This slight acidity did not hinder me at all this time, and the quotation is the same as the first time again.

Citrus fruits (tangerine) and spices characterize the nose.
The palate experiences a pleasant impression of pepper whit a slightly acid touch and a very light medicinal hint on the background.
The finish is lingering and powerful.

The nose is first discrete, but reveals soon all the complexity between citrus fruits and peppery hints of this exceptional whisky.
The alcohol degree somewhere between cask strength and traditional is rather pleasant in the mouth. From slightly acid notes (citrus fruits) up to peppery and spicy hints.
A very long finish, and the pleasure is complete. Another excellent bottle in another excellent collection. I really recommend this bottling.
