Dunglass 5yo Miniature

Came across this curious miniature from Dunglass a heavily peated version of Littlemill. Curiously the label on the miniature has no ABV or volumetric information! I have found a similar bottle on the Internet that was bottled in a green bottle for the Italian market and that was bottled at 43% ABV. I don't know when this was distilled but going by what I have found on the wonders of the Internet! they stopped producing this style of whisky in 1972.

Nose: Soft and green, grassy and typical young lowlander style after initial hit of alcohol. Faint hint of chlorine but no smokiness.

Taste: Dry, malty with a faint whiff of peat coming through but more wood taste than peaty. Also lots of lemon sherbet notes:

Finish: Short and crisp leaving a citrusy / banana feeling.

Comments: Not a bad we dram but would say they must have been pretty shy with the peat!

Score: 81/100 Difficult one to score though!
