General description

On the first time trying It had a moderate peat with a background of spices and citrus that was not overly sweet. I was getting a salty soda water flavor on the finish. Good at 40%, but would be great at 43-46. However, very pleasantly surprised early on. For a comparison, it seems like a moderately peated combination of Glenfiddich 12 and Old Pultney 12.

General description

Juran hyvä perusviski.

Nose

Kevyt savu, kypsää mangoa, oreganoa, vaniljakuorrutetta muffinssin päällä.

Palate

Vaniljaisen pehmeä jota turve hieman katkeroittaa. Olloroso tuntuu myös ikenissä tanniineina.

Finish

Loppua kohden kitkeröityy. Hyvä kokonaisuus.
