Review #380 (2016)

From the bottler The Single Cask. This is from cask B/433 and only 249 bottles were made. It is light and floral on the nose at first. Sweet vanilla as well. After some time in the glass some peat appears. Gentle peat and white fruits.

Peppery and peated in the taste. Black pepper and vanilla. The second sip gets less intense in the alcohol influence and more intense in the peat. Some apple and pears as well. It is exactly these notes that lingers out in the finish. The sweet peat is the last to leave.

It is not very often I come across a whisky where the smell, taste and finish reminds me so much of each other, but this is one of those, except from the black pepper in the taste and finish. It is only 7 years old but that works fine here with the sweet peat and the notes from young fresh spirit. I will give this 83/100 (21/21/21/20).
