A fresh and very pleasant nose. Notes of grass and hay with a touch of mint and a hint of smoke. A beautiful complexity.
In the mouth, fruits, but not very spectacular fruits. Some bitter notes mixed with maritime notes, salty. The mouth is quite set back from the nose.
The finish is long, with a slight bitter dominance.

The nose detects a rather complex mix of peat and fruits (apple) on a medicinal background. Sherry is present too.
In the palate, a slightly smoky peat dominates, with a clear hint of liquorice or violet and a discrete touch of acidity (green apple?) crowns the taste.
The finish is warm and pleasant, even if it is a bit dry with a touch of acidity. It is however not too long.

A second tasting revealed some frank sherry hints, mixed with peat.
The nose remains very pleasant and the taste is excellent. However, the sherry domination makes that this bottle loses one point in the general appreciation.
The finish remains lingering and pleasant.

This version leaves a very good impression behind, although less imperishable as the 19 years old version in the same collection. But it stays an excellent, amazingly balanced whisky, with some peaty and smoky hints.
Very sweet, the finish is rather long. This is an except

A nice nose, where a nice presence is denoted. Hazelnut smells on a peaty and slightly smoky background. Slightly spicy notes, a touch of sherry.
The mouth is first rather dry, with a nice complexity, mix of peat and liquorice.The first dryness makes room for a nice oily palate after a while, when some bitter notes are coming up. Wood is pleasantly present at the end.
The lingering finish is warm and very pleasant, perfectly in touch with the late mouth, and sherry comes discretly up at the end.
