The aroma is heavy and a bit salty. A bit like Talisker, when there barrels are facing the sea, but without the peaty aroma. I feel, however, some grass or heather in the glass, perhaps from water movement through the rainforest. Will be interesting to taste if there is any kind of peat / smoke in this one.
The taste is very powerful in the taste, for a 10 year old bottling at 43%. After a few minutes in the glass it opens up. Dry taste with plenty of spices and lightly toasted oak. The finish is very comfortable with the warmth and the spices that lingers long. Nice touch of a whisky at 43%.
It is fairly complex for a 10 year old standard bottling. However, the balance is not the best as it fluctuates somewhat between aroma, taste and finish. I give it, however, 81/100 (21/19/21/20).
