Nose: Citric peat, diesel, chargilled steak. Water adds some floral notes.

Palate: Chargrilled sirloin marinated in Old No.7 sauce with chargrilled eggplant and chargrilled capsicum on the side. Eucalyptus tree regrowth after a bush fire. Camphor, Kippers. Peppery spice, cigar smoke. With water becomes more citric/lemon and chocolatey. Perfectly drinkable neat at 61.4 per cent.

Finish: Peat, peppered gravy, chargrilled steak, cigar smoke, diesel, lemon. Long, warming and drying out at the end.

General comments: I’d heard good things about this. Seems they are true. Amazing balance and complexity for a 3-month-old new make.

Rating: 88/100
