Palate: Youngish, duh. Little bit of iodine and strong earthy peat, something like chewing soil that just got hit by a wave. Goes flat quickly. Finish is nothing more than an odd pepperyness. There's definitely no depth to this, but the strength of flavor in a watered down 3 year old gives me hope for the future of this malt. B-/B
Nose of charcoal, peat smoke, something antiseptic (camphor?), and notes of bubblegum. Palate is big and smokey, not very dimensional, but it will hit your peat tooth well. There is such a thing as a peat tooth, right? Finish is very long, with sticky smoke. As time passes and the glass opens up, it gets sweeter and generally fruitier. Very tasty if you're in the mood, and surprisingly great given the age. I can't wait to see how this ages -- but I'll very happily drink it now too! Let it open up and enjoy. B/B+
PS: Price is criminal. Come on guys, be fair about this stuff, please?
N: Light peat, marshmallow, cake, macaroons. P: Remarkably smooth and sweet for a 3 year, oily and mouth coating. F: Vanilla, some spice, and a trace of cacao. This is very good stuff at 3 years. Excited to see how it ages.
