The nose is both iodized and peated, complex with notes of citrus fruit. The same citrus fruit are first present in a dry palate.
The mouth developes on more rounded impressions after a while. Peat smoke delicately modifies the acid impression, before being itself replaced by some nutty taste. The percentage of alcohol is clearly perceptible.
The finish is rather long, first on citrus notes, before evoluating on warmer and more bitter impressions.

Despite the high percentage of alcohol of this edition, the nose detects delicate smoky hints.
The palate, pleasant but dominated by alcohol, confirms the quality of this malt from a definitively closed distillery.
A long finish evoking the malted barley, crowns it all. This bottling, although excellent, is certainly not the best whisky produced by this mythic distillery.

A very rich and complex nose, mixing peat smoke to slight citrus hints on a iodine and malt background. In short a whole world on itself.
The first impression in the palate is a burning sensation, due to the exceptional alcohol degree, but it quickly gives way to a firework at sensations, from spices to salt through malt and cashew nuts.
A very long finish with chocolate and peat reminiscences. An excellent bottle.
