The nose is quite sharp on sweet peat, but also fat
like famer butter. The maritime elements are strongly pushing forward, much
more so than on older bottlings. The fruit is therefore overpowered by ashes,
seaweeds, salty and a dying bonfire. Very good, though. It even has quite a
sour edge, which reminds me more of a Laffie or a Bunna.
It is a whole lot sweeter on the palate. The ashes and
seaweeds are pushed back by apples and citrus. Then the peat rears its head.
Very powerful and grand. Oysters, lime zest, vanilla. In that regards, it is
much like the Natural Cask Strength. Becomes sweeter all the time.
The finish lasts forever and remains smoky and sweet
until the very last moment.
