"On the nose powerful oak and smoke make one believe this gem has aged much longer than three years. Balance is found, as creamy vanilla joins the bold smoke on the palate, with a touch of juicy forest fruit kicking in. Finishing with oak and gentle citrus, this is a peaty release that rivals many of the greats from Islay. "
