Bottled at cask strength as part of the Diageo core release, this is an oily, thick, creamy, peaty masterpiece. On the nose, complex with honey and leather with some fresh citrus and even some sweet woody notes. On the taste, it is unguent, full of oil and wax with licorice and citrus and some tropical fruits.
At full strength, the peat burn is immense. With water, more peat and smoke comes out, but with a lemon and citrus freshness.
You can have one bottle of Brora 40 year old, which is a very similar hit; or more wisely perhaps 8 of these. We have 20 in stock. Go for it.
