Comment: An invigorating dram, well balanced. With a pleasant spicy outburst. Water brings out sweetness.
Nose: Oily and dense with manure, earth and a light marzipan note. Whoa! Rubber and manuery-peat assailing the senses! With time a touch of tangerine appears. There’s serious weight to this nose.
Palate: Oily and a little unfocused. A touch of oily marzipan and lazy peat but pretty homogeneous to be honest.
Finish: Long and spicy. It’s showing character! Salty and nutty with some lovely dry, earthy-peat. Leaves a superb sooty mouth coating.
Comment: If only the palate had the intensity of the nose and the finish, which is when it sprang to life!
