Tasting Notes

Nose

Moderately peaty, but the underlying sweet barley balances. Quite crisp and it reminds me of an un-coastal Caol Ila. With time some oily, coffeed malt and a slight floral note.

Palate

Shows more oily barley and sweet white fruit, but the gentle, earthy-peat moves in quickly. Sweet barley and malt counters. Pleasantly full with heather, gorse and honey on the middle.\n

Finish

Long and crisp with a slight saltiness. Lingering dry spice, peat and vanilla oak.\n

Comment

A textbook example of how to use peat without swamping the character of the spirit.
