An unapologetically rich and meaty single malt.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Peanut oil, soy sauce, black pepper, shiitake mushroom, and seared beef. Subtle peat and charcoal. Apple cider vinegar. Black cherry and rich vanilla. Hints of liquorice and sticky ginger cake.
Palate: Medium. Barbequed beef, with the savoury stir-fry notes from the nose. Dark chocolate-dipped cherries, rich oat-milk mocha, and toffee sauce. Sesame seed and lentil cracker.
Finish: Medium-long, with cocoa powder, toasted oak, and some tannins.
Comment: An unapologetically rich and meaty single malt.
Nose: Aromatic woody notes of amber, sandalwood, and camphor. Pachouli, too. Ripe mango, cocoa, toffee, and pomegranate molasses.
Palate: Medium-full. More aromatic wood notes, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and earthy papaya juice. Then come milk chocolate, toffee, hazelnut, clove, and star anise.
Finish: The toffee and anise notes play out to the end, as delicate tannins dry things slightly.
Comment: A distinctive, unusual style that’s very alluring.
