I tasted this magnificent dram at a whisky event in Boston poured by Simon, the brand ambassador of the East Cost. It is the second event that Simon has served me this dram. And it is the second time that it wins the crown of the best dram of the evening.

Nose: Apple and pears at first. Then the peat is still there (more than in the 18 yo) with some sweet notes that give a very very nice mix. very smooth and complex

Mouth: All in apples with some smoky peat. Again very smooth, it is like tasting a liquorish nectar.

Finale: very very long and sweet

Balance: one of the best, nothing goes out, everything in there work as a team. For me, it is like the Montreal Canadians of 1993... they worked as a team and there was a lot of overtime wins !

Great review! I was lucky enough to sample this recently at the Whisky Show in London, and really enjoyed it, certainly one of the standouts. I just wish it was more affordable so i could buy a bottle!

I so agree with Kutter's assessment: magnicifent. Simon poured me a sample during Denver's 2012 Scotch Malt Whisky Society Extravaganza. The sample ruined me for wanting anything else for the rest of the evening. All I could think of was mugging Simon and hiding in a corner with the bottle until the police came to take me away.

I bought a few bottles based on your review and, having tried some, completely agree - what an experience! I actually prefer the original 40% bottling to the cask strength versions (although having said that the cask strength is also lovely). Cheers.

Sounds most lovely. Of course, at 250L a throw, I would be expecting a 97 class whisky.

Agreed Victor - in Australia it's around AUD$450 a bottle which is of course crasy!
