Gal Granov (90)
color : light straw , the lightest of all three.
nose: Lots and lots of lemon notes. reminds me of the CI unpeated, lemony theme, but with the added phenols, peat and smoke . very fresh, green grass, green apple peel. the ABV is evident.. a nose is different than both 12 and 18. i do think it’s really unique.
Palate: Obviously young and kicking! strong peat, with sweet middle and mouth coating. Oily. Salty notes appear after you chew on it a bit. yep! sea spray salty! what a nice touch!
Finish : heaps of peat. very warming and long.some bacon notes and spice. the longest of all three in terms of finish. Ace.
