At Only You Boutique Hotel Madrid, over a nice conversation with my uncle.

An intense and bright golden to amber pour. Aroma is really intense, one of the most intense whiskies I've tasted: of course the first blow delivered to your nose is that of peaty scents: leather, smoke, charcoal, even tar. There is a subtle tinge of lime that somewhat balances things, but certainly this is an over-the-top peated scotch.

Surprisingly, rather than dry, it begins sweet and, despite the low ABV, it feels quite strong. Crispness comes along midpalate to bring some equilibrium to the equation, as did that lime in the nose. Very long-lasting smoky finish.

I usually don't go for overpeated drams, and I know this is a basic single malt, but I must say I like it, even better than perceived superior examples such as Lagavulin 16 or Ardbeg Uigeadail, which cost twice as much or more.
