Tasting Notes

Nose

Glazed country ham alongside a light smoky note. Shows good maturity and light dry oak. The water brings out caulked timbers and light lapsang, but all elements are balanced.

Palate

Peppery start with wasabi-like heat adding to the martime impressions. The feel is oily and it needs a drop of water. This smooths it, allowing more spiced flavours to develop.

Finish

Long, smoky, intriguing.

Comment

Fantastic balance and depth for its age. Exemplary old peaty whisky.
