Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Peat straight up, with plenty of those Brora'y notes, direct from the farm. It can best be described as standing in a barn, just after a heavy downpour. Cows, wet fur, soaked earth - quite the smell. With time the peat converts to more classic wood smoke. With water: The peat takes a back seat to the farmyard smells.
Taste: Huge! The peat is aggressive and comes right at you. Really hard to believe that this one is 30 years old. Tar and quite citric. With water: Softer, with slighty softer sweeter notes.
Finish: Very concentrated, full, long with great balance, like a lovely concentrated lump of peat sitting right on the middle of your tongue.
