Dist: Oct 1996 Btl: Jan 2012
Tasted: Jan 2012
More maturity on the nose than the 12 year old with menthol, camphor accentuated honey and fleshy apricot, banana and barley. Subtly peated with a distant coastal bonfire note. A seriously fruity ‘phroaig.

The palate is drier and less fruity than the nose would lead you to believe. There is a greater degree of peat soaked oils along with a hint of creosote. Even the intense alcohol fails to dislodge those oils as the stick to the mouth. Lovely length with the herbal notes running riot – bog myrtle, menthol and seaweed. Finishing with a light Colombian coffee and liquorice note.
