I originally wrote these notes for my Norwegian review back in September last year, but never quite got around to translate it for Connosr.
Nose: Peat, a clear touch of malt, leather and some sweet, fruity sherry. Oak and a hint of salt. The peat is consistent and controlled, and never dominating.
Taste: This has an oily mouth feel, with a calm arrival of flavours, and a pleasant alcoholic sting. The intensity of the peat here is gradually increasing. Smoke, roasted coffee, spearmint and sherry.
Finish: Surprisingly pleasant and soft. Spearmint, liquorice and oak. Peppery warmth, smokey flavours evolving towards sweet smoke.
For me, this is elegance and control in a bottle.
