  • Intro:

    This is a young, heavily peated, release from Bunnahabhain much in the same vein of Bruichladdich's Octomore project.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, pungent peat and moss. Earthy, oceanic, mossy.

  • Taste:

    Medium to thick mouthfeel. Sweet cream, lemon, honey, ginger, almond, rich dead fish. Mossy, rich and smokey. Light ash.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet and rich with peat. Smokey, ashy, lots of fishy unami.

  • Overall:

    Good and shockingly brash / complex for the age. A tiny bit hot, but the complexity here is a winner despite its youth.
