Nose: Toasted barley, caramel, long dry grasses in late summer, dried chrysanthemum, honey comb.

Mouth: Clover honey, rock salt, lemon balm, sea breeze, hot ocean sand, very faint peat. A nice oily texture.

Finish: Medium to short due to excessive oxygenation in the bottle. Greek yogurt, hot buttered toast, faint peat, Himalayan pink salt. Leaves a nice sweet and oily taste/texture in the mouth.

I have not yet tasted the 57% (newer) version. I will do so very soon. I'm told the Stillhouse has an unopened bottle to be had. This review is strictly for posterity as both the 50% and the 57% are "unobtanium."

Note: This bottle only had two fingers left in the bottom, if that.

Update to my tasting notes:

Nose: Pink and white coated animal crackers (American), sea breeze over grassy fields, white floral, comfortable smell of old vintage leather car seats.

Mouth: Freshly opened printer paper, faint orange blossom, Morton salt.

Finish: a bit of brown sugar and vintage leather. Finish is medium not medium-short. The leather hangs on for a while and finally turns bitter leaving a grass sap flavor that reminds me of the finish on An Cnoc 12 a little bit.

It wasn't too long ago (Christmas 2014?) that I found one of these collecting dust in a very random little "spirits, gifts, & candy" shop in a small town. I don't really expect to find any more from this point, but I bet there are a few out there for someone to find. I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat if I did find one.
