House Style: Piney, lightly oily, soft, salty.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Jim Murray

Nose: Massive peat. Ultra-intense iodine carries a shade more spice than of old. The fruity-sherry notes are clean, vanilla is much deeper. Beautifully layered.

 

Palate: Peat so thick you could stand a spoon in it. Chewy iodine bolstered by sherry and big oak.

 

Finish: A little spice lightens the grip of the peat and vanilla. Dries off with malt, dried dates...and iodine.

 

Comment: A true classic in every sense that offers breathtaking depth.
