During the second tasting, a slightly acid dominant characteristic and a relatively short finish made me review my first quotation. The salted hints, inherited from the stay in Islay cask are still present.

Strange combination, the jewel of the Speyside area matured in casks having contained smoky and peaty whisky from Islay. The first contact is disconcerting. The nose offers a mix of unexpected fragrances, but is rather interesting.
The palate is special too. A Speyside with Islay hints. Salt-sugared. Good whisky. An oily impression too.
A finish of average length. A very good bottle.

During the third tasting, this whisky seemed to be completely different from the 2 first times (own taste evolution, or action of the time on the spirit?).
The nose is very fruity, revealing clearly pear fragrances and a nice complexity.
In the palate, this whisky is nicely fruity and complex, mixing pear hints to clearly floral notes, on an earthy background, giving to this whisky a kind of musty impression, probably due to the influence of the Islay cask.
The finish is lingering and floral, and very interesting.
