Jean-Marie Putz

The nose is overrun by a strong salty and smoky wave. Despite the power of this wave, a great complexity and an exceptional spicy and peppery delicacy on a discrete woody background.
In the palate, just perfection. Very slight acid notes quickly make room to very pleasant salty, peppery and spicy notes. A great freshness, despite the high degree of alcohol.
An exceptionally long and pleasant finish. A very great and unusual sophistication! Really an unbelievable wonder. It is very hard not to give the absolute top quotation to this fantastic bottle.

A very expressive nose, somewhere between salt, pepper and peat smoke, but even much more. A hint of plum, liquorice and a remote impression of hay. A great balance of fragrances.
In the palate, the first impression is a bit of dryness, but very soon a pleasant mix of peat with a hint of sweet citrus fruit (tangerine) appears, followed by some discrete woody hints, slightly dominated by pepper and spices, giving it an unusual complexity. A remarkable balance too, where all the impressions are clearly present, but where none of them clearly dominates the other ones.
The finish is exceptionally long, and again characterized by this remarkable balance between fine and discrete wood, smoke and very discrete hints of citrus as well.

The nose is amazingly balanced and rich. Delicate but powerful peat, very fine smoky aromas (smoked ham) and no aggressiveness at all.
The impression in the palate is immediately very complex. A mix of dry peat and citrus fruits with just a little acidity, but an unequaled taste richness quite contrasting with the austerity of peat. Despite its great age, wood did not contaminate the taste of this great whisky.
The finish is long and delicate. Nice memories of smoke, peat and some hints of citrus and of alcohol coming gently back to the palate.
