Glen Scotia 1992 (Berry Bros, bottled 2008) 55.7%

6 July

Nose: subtle smoke and peat.
Mouth: the smoke and peat get subtler still; light fruit, honey, wood, and grain come through in stages, dissolving into a curious burnt ash taste each time. This sounds unpleasant, but it's not at all.
Finish: long and warm.

A surprising and difficult-to-describe experience. Really very different, but in a good way. Certainly one of those unusual "I didn't know whisky could do this" malts. Highly recommended.
