Nose: Pow! Peat, Tarmac, Oatcakes and seaweed. Iodine and (just a touch of) sticking plaster.
Palate: Hugely sweet, rich peaty goodness. Nothing really gets a look-in beyond brown sugar, peat, barley and oats. Marvellously rich peaty porridge.
Finish: Rounds out, becomes ever more palate-coating and cereal-rich. Top banana.
Overall: Who said the best peaty whiskies are old, or from Islay (or both)? This is an astonishing dram whose beastly richness belies its age.
