Tasting Notes

Nose

Soft and honeyed with gentle traces of liquorice and stronger peat emerging through sherry notes.

Palate

Light, honeyed and playfully viscous; leading eventually to more liquorice and peat.

Finish

Disappointingly short. Perhaps over-sherried for such a delicate malt. The peat cuts in sharply to dominate the finish.

Comment

More complex than the 15 Years Old but somehow lacks the balance and lingering charm.
