I taste this right after the Special No 17 which also got a moscatel finish, but what I have in my glass now is much younger. After all, it matured for barely 4 years. But it's the peated version of their malt, so there is that. Nice copper color.

Oh, that's unusual. Bread dough, butter, tomato juice... but completely devoid of sweets. This is very umami, I have to say. Oh, wait, there's sweet and sour fruit appearing. Agrum, so to say. It's very unusual. Unique almost. That doesn't mean I'm overwhelmed.

Oily and therefore mouth-filling. Much better than the nose announced. Now, in addition to the typical peaty tang, I also get green grapes, grapefruit and sultanas. The smoke becomes relatively big and you could easily confuse it with a Bunna or even a Laffie.

The finish is long, relatively spicy and satisfying.

This costs only 40 EUR. I'm okay with that! Another sample I got from Manny. Thank you, buddy.
