Tasting Notes:
Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

Colour: white wine.

Nose: this one is just as fab on the nose, maybe a little rougher, peatier and certainly more maritime. Much closer to today’s profile, more medicinal, with lots of iodine, something nicely sour, lemon juice, fresh oysters (Davin says gay oysters, don’t ask me why). Gets then extremely farmy, on wet dog, hay, turnips… Then motor oil again, tar… Again a fabulous one!

Mouth: oh yes, yes, yes… I’m sorry but it’s so elegant yet powerful, compact and full-bodied… We won’t torture you any further. 95 points.
