Tasting Notes

Nose

Another of those pink whiskies, yet it smells of iodine, tar and fish oil. Water brings out peat-smoked apricots. In time there's raspberry leaf and Spangles scattered over a stony beach. Weirdly interesting.

Palate

The smoke hits immediately, then some light but concentrated fruitiness. Still very tense and dry.

Finish

Wood and peat smoke. Singed wool.

Comment

Austere, pretty challenging. Finished, I suspect, to inject some fruity life into its dry bones.
