Recently I do like peaty drams. I mean I do like very peaty drams. This is an extremely peaty dram. You'd better skip this review if you are fond of The Famous Grouse. This dram is not delicate. It is not soft or subtle. It is intense, fierce and savage.
Its nose is has strong elements of brine, salt ,iodine, rubber, sea weed, peat and smoke. It is not like a storm, but it is like a hurricane entering the sea shore.
Its palate has elements of honey, cereal and caramel but it turns into salt and smoke quickly. Liquorice. Peat. Olives. Hints of white fruit. The raging sea is flooding the earth while it is raining cats and dogs.
The finish is long and impressive. Smoke. Peat . After the storm and rain you feel awe for the forces of nature. And one gazes with astonishment to a new world which was hidden by the weather.
