This is a heavy peated Jura (30 ppm) limited edition, and part of the 'boutique barrel' series.

Color: Rich Amber

Nose: On first whiff we get some strong peat , wow. I was not expecting this on my first nosing. Really powerful peat. after a few seconds in the glass the peat reek softens, and the nose gets more complex : tengerine, zest of a lemon , kumquats and candied orange peel. Lovely stuff. peat is in the backdrop. a very unique, combination that i dig. Wonderful. Adding some water brings out more lemony notes, and freshness.

Palate: First you get hit by the peat, and then smoke and some fruity elements, and those oranges and candied orange peel are all over, with some oak and vanilla. Nice array of tastes, and lovely thick body. 55% alcohol, makes it virile and biting.

Finish: A long finish, ending on ash and smoke. drying.
