General description

that don't impress me much, the peatiness is surprising, but overall this one is a bit too boring for a 25-years old single malt


fresh, not very alcoholic, oak and some vanilla or rum influence, with some water added some dry smoke note is popping up together with a liiiiiiiitle more vanilla or rum


stronger on the palate than in the nose, sweet behind the alcohol like milk chocolate or vanilla pod, quite dry over all, with some water added much creamier with peat and some dark chocolate


there is a hint of dry peat staying on the palate, stays long and becomes a bit metallic after awhile
