Peated Blended Malt — Islands, Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars
Faint smoke, but sharp and succulent peat on the palate. powdered hard licorice candies sour wild apples pronounced bitterness, bitter oranges blood oranges, peaches, pineapples, grapefruit, pomegranate bananas, banana peels green pepper, black pepper honey treacle marzipan Medium dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa powder, dusty, gets very rich and chocolaty that un-chill filtered frozen yogurt note bit of waxy malt Salty and has kind of a fresh mineraly sea air presence - Half a teaspoon of water, give it half an hour to really bring the age out. Tremendous age. Does a flip - turns itself completely inside-out about three weeks in. Goes from sharp and zingy to birthday cake: milk chocolate, whipped cream, huge yellow fruit. Very full and soft. One of the most outstanding and delicious malts I have ever tasted. Very well vatted.
