I wish i had tysons capability of describing it to you guys.
I will just say this, from what im capable of.
The finish to me was so polished, it tasted of the OAK wood i believe it was in an oak cask (sue me if im wrong) and it was definatly only me appreciating it there, as both of my cousins didnt like it (due to its cask strength i guess). They were happy with the merlot my aunt had as well.
It to me almost reminded me of lagavulin, but much much better. Definatly tasted the peat as well. I wonder if the bottles are available over the internet? I can only assume it's 100-200 dollar bottle if it was 100 over in scotland. She told me the guy who sold her the bottle looked like jon nash's imaginary friend from beautiful mind, i dont know if she was joking or not, but she kept saying it was him haha.
WOW! After thumbing through google, i absolutely CANNOT find this particular, only their 29 year going for around 300 or more!
I wish i knew how lucky i was, i woulda tried to take notes for you guys.
P.S Can you guys recommend me a bottle in the 80-150 range as a gift to my dad who doesn't know a fine single malt from jim beam black which he insists is the best ; ).
He hated my maclan cask strength btw, but he did actually like the spring bank 15. I want to get him something very special that we both like, be it a scotch or headphone (wont derail this thread, just recommendations please ; ) )
He prefers smokey and smooth to peaty and flavorful.
