I tried this one before, but it is such a fine whisky that it is no punishment to return to it. It won top honours at the 2008 World Whisky Awards. Need I say more?
The nose bursts with sherry influence. Fresh figs, dry apricots, some chocolate, sirop the Liège (dark pear syrup from Belgium), farmers butter, chewing tobacco, candied sugar and creaking old sofa leather. Wonderful.
It is very creamy and nicely spicy on the palate. Nutmeg passes with flying colors, then comes the pear syrup and smoke. Wonderful peat.
In the long, sweet finish a pinch of sea salt rears its head.
Wonderful whisky, no longer available.
