Aroma: peat, citrus fruits and ginger. Spicy, needs water. With water comes more pepper, spices and ginger.
Palate: fruits and honey,some smoked ham and peat with hints of liquorice. Nice balance. Some oranges with chocolate comes then. And salt of course. Finish: salty, with bitter orange peel, peat and spice.
Comments: really nice. Similar to Caol Ila 27 YO, 1981 (Duncan Taylor) I had recently. I like this style of bouquet and palate.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
