I bought this bottle in Kansas City for 35$. I think I made the best deal in town at that time. I have tasted it previously during a whisky event along with the Ardmore 30 years old. I found during that evening that I liked better the tradional cask, but it was hard to do a proper review with those small event samples.
Now that I have my own bottle, I can take more time to taste it
Nose: It is peated indeed, but it is not the same peat that we found is Islay malt. It is interesting, more plant-like than organic. There isn't the smoke associated to it. Some pear and vanilla with a hint of toffee. very nice.
Palate: The taste is good, peated first than more fruity.
Finale: Longer than I expected for a young malt. A lingering taste of peated fruits makes you delay the next sip to enjoy the most of it.
This is a very very good daily dram at a more than affordable price for peat lovers out there. It is well balanced and has a nice complexity.
