Taste-wise, it's a really singular and complex peated malt with huge savoury notes, lots of earthy smoke, and a solid honeyed backbone. It's not a make that's seen that often, and really worth a go for anyone who likes peated whisky and wants to try something different!
Just 158 bottles were drawn from a hogshead at 62.5% and they are available for £50 each.
COLOUR: A sense of limescale.
ON THE NOSE: Zingy with citrus and ripe apples. A fresh, light and floral peat. Oily, lemon peel, white chocolate and a slight medicinal note. Familiar notes of honey and a Sunday morning legacy of bacon fat after a fry up.
II THE MOUTH: Smoky, very smoky. Then those limes and squashed lemons followed by Kiwi Fruits and roasted carrots? There’s a charred or barbeque nature in here. Drinkable at cask strength, lemon thyme and a floral heather honey.
