This is seamless stuff and despite the smokiness is unshowy. Only 9 Years Old? Great things are on their way.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Smoky with seaweed and burned wood. Slightly vegetal/eucalypt with a hint of firelighter.
Palate: Immediate hit of smoke, cubeb berries but then a silky sweet mid-palate with touches of citrus. Then the smoke returns.
Finish: Salty and a little lean.
Comment: This is seamless stuff and despite the smokiness is unshowy. Only 9 Years Old? Great things are on their way.
Nose: Woodsmoke, raisiny fudge and burning field stubble. Smoked almonds.
Palate: A real witches' cauldron. The smokiness is very dense. With time green apple, lime and Werther's Original caramels come through.
Finish: Fading smoke and some pepper, but not as intense and lasting as I'd expected.
Comment: A breathless, smoky charge with great clarity of flavour.
