Jean-Marie Putz

The nose is gently marked by discrete and refined peat masking hints of cut grass and some citrus fruit on the background. Smoke as well, the whole in a perfect and promising balance.
The mouth is amazingly fresh and citrus fruits which were on the background at the nosing take advantage on the peat which remains refine and discrete. This tasting being not a blind one, I can say that this bottle is quite a nice surprise. Far from the warm and sometimes heavy peated character of some other expressions from this distillery.
Finish is at top level as well. Subtle mix of peat and citrus fruits, freshness and happiness. Very long happiness...
