Tasting Notes by Max
It is normal that certain whisky tastes a bit different under different circumstances - what's been on your palate before, what's your mood, what's outside temperature... But this whisky has such a strong personality that it neglects all factors and enters the scene erasing all previous experiences - here I am, enjoy me!
Nose: more on the smoky and peaty side of course, but there are also quite some citrus and a bit of white fruits.
Palate: initial warm and sweet glow, it explodes with baked fruits, pepper, spices, lime, ginger, and leaves cloud of smoke after explosion.
Finish: magnificent, long, medicinal, sterile, road tar, coal, machine oil. It is actually so long that you can enjoy it even after brushing your teeth.
I enjoyed it's younger brother An Turas Mor very much. And this one is so much more intense and mature! Great balance contributes to being extremely attractive whisky.
