Classic gunflint profile. Needs about 90 minutes to really open up, take on weight and volume.

Preferred over Bowmore(s), so much more elegant and precise.

End all be all of whisky. Delicate floral and paint thinner aromatics, it just works. Crisp, fruit palate with length that goes forever. Blows the regular bottling and Peninsula away.

From recent ex-domaine auction. Wow this was stellar. Delicate violet aromatics. Palate retains enough sweetness to charm.

Not the best representation of this bottle. Maybe heat affected, but too coffee and lacked fine delineation. (7764/14772)

Friend thought corked but I think it's just the rusticity and burned stem quality of the wine. Thin palate.

Behind Tache tonight but could catchup. Much more tightly wound. Prototypical stem explosion aromatics. Palate less integrated, rougher texture and less sweetness than Tache. (1515/2985)

Impressive especially in vintage context. Floral, not excessively stemmy or green aromatics. Pure, quite sweet palate. (15997/18196)

Table debated advanced, but I thought just reflected vintage characteristic. Bit rounder and less flinty than typical.
