Old Ballantruan The 'Peated Malt'

Peated Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

4.0 out of 5 stars
A little less passionate compared to the extraordinary 10 y.o. version. To the nose: heavy peat, many fresh notes and orange peel. The taste is same - very peated; pleasantly sweet on the edges of the tongue, some citrus, deep smoked barley; but somewhat pale relatively to the 10 years version. Finish is decent - smoky, mouthfilling, “oily”; there is some barley too. It seemed to be very likely to Ledaig 10 y.o. The second tasting reveals much more mature and sweeter nature (same bottle, after 2 months since opening - does not seem to deteriorate). Cool. With a touch of water it gives you some more citrus and cream. Well-deserved 4.
