Colour: for what is worth this dram shows a beautiful golden colour, but I think it's at least partly due to our friend E150.
Nose: this whisky welcomes you with one of the most nice noses I've met: it's crisp, very expressive with earthy moss, salty water and beautiful coastal notes, plus something like stale beer. And peat obviously.
Taste: it's here that the double nature of this whisky has struck me most. It starts with those beautiful earthy and mossy peaty notes, edged by coastal undertones and built on a solid layer of malty sweetness and something that reminds me of pop corn. Again stale beer. Unusual and very very good. But. But at this point something unexpected happens and you feel that the whisky has lost his way on a coffeish path that it's not completely unpleasant but not very coherent with all the rest in my opinion, probably due to its young age. Nonetheless, it remains a pretty nice taste(as far as the score is concerned, for me it's 24 at the beginning and 18 for how it ends, 21 on the whole).
Finish: again, it shows a little harshness coming from the young age and not too long, on the same notes described above.
Overall: it seems like the master blender left his place half work, and it's a shame since this shows great potential, but it remains a pretty good dram, and an enjoyable one.
