General description

Impressive whisky, quite a different animal than the classic 10 yo at 43% ABV. An absolute belter of a whisky, but not for the fainthearted as this takes you on quite a ride.

Nose

88

red fruits and fruitcake with spices, with peat lingering in the background, grainy and nutty. when adding water it develops into a more rounded nose, with the fruit even more prominent

Taste

89

dry arrival, rather different than the nose. the same elements are present but the balance is altogether different: the peat is more prominent and I picked up a lot more spicy notes. After adding water the balance is somewhat restored, and when you give it another 15 minutes a lot of woody and nutty notes march to the front to add some more complexity to the already impressive party.

Finish

87

long and sticky with peat, wood and nuts dominating

General description

In comparison to its regular 10yrs version, much more body, bit more sharp in alcohol, but less peaty.
