what a great bottle. I know it’s an odd opinion but I prefer this to the 10. has a bit of the soft vegetal smoothness that kilchomans machir bay has, covered by a really aggressive smoke and tar. there’s so many stages to the development of this drink, and that’s what i love about it. smooth green barley, heavy smoke, tar, sherry sweetness, and a peppery spice intermingle and vie for dominance over the course of the journey. it finishes on the tar though, which i have to say is an objectively unpleasant note. retronasal brings back some grassy smoothness though.
