Member Ratings and Notes
A lighter nose on this release with floral tart notes along with toasted malts and minerals.  The peat is hiding but eventually comes out from the background.  Tastes of sweet peaty candied green apples along with lemon zest and ash.  The finish is slightly bitter, almost kinda of rubbery with tobacco. B+/A- 

N: Salty, lemon, a little camphor, and of course peat.  Oil lamp.
P: Oily and peaty, very full with notes of citrus in the background.
F: Lemon.

Tasted alongside the 9th release, this seemed a little lighter in peat but I liked it a bit better.   But they are very close.  A-/A

Outstanding. No notes.
