Rich peaty aromas with nougat, peach creme brulee, and smoky grilled fruits and nuts with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a long melange and fruits, nuts, spice, lit menthol cigarette, and smoky earth peat. Excellent balance and style. Tastings.com, 95 points.
Colour - straw. Nose starts rather yeasty and acidic, on apple peels, lemon and sauvignon blanc, the peat kicking in a little later. Faint hints of antiseptic but not many more medicinal notes...Mouth an immense saltiness and quite some earthy peat...notes of crystallised lemons and quite some liquorice wood...Finish long, balanced, almost perfect now, right between the peat, the lemon and the earthiness. Comments shy nose, good palate, great finish...Malt Maniacs
