The best thing I’ve ever experienced. It’s so difficult to explain how I felt drinking this spectacular dram.

Nose

Iodine, chocolate, coffee, hint of cinnamon, fruity, dried apricots and peat (just a bit). Very complex.

Palate

Incredible, it gets even better. More fruits, chocolate and coffee; touch of pleasant peat. Oily and a bit mouthwatering

Finish

Long, very long. I think it lasted about 20 minutes and it changed during this period. Peat, smoke, more coffee and sea.

Score

It’s so difficult to explain. Imagine a very bad day, this bottle can change it. Believe me if I say it’s totally worth the price.

Not 100/100, because I don’t know if there’s something better but I doubt.

99/100
