  • Pallette, with Water:
  • Iodine, peat, caramel, pepper, honey

  • Finish:
  • peppery, bacon With water: pepper, fruity (berries), vanilla, subtle smoke

Overall this is a fantastic whisky. It goes for a premium price but for a limited bottling of this quality I for one believe it’s worth it.

Against the 10 yo it feels very well finished and the maturity smoothes it out very well. I’d highly recommend picking up a bottle if you can find it before they all disappear.

Overall: 93/100
