Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent, burnt wood, iodine, salt and peat with an underlying depth of malt and fragrant barley. It takes some time to settle down and allow some oak notes to appear.

Palate

The peat is subtler and wistful, which allows the barley, oak and subtle stony notes to come through. The peat becomes sweeter, with Parma Violets and salt on the middle.\n

Finish

Long, violet with hints of burnt driftwood, tarry-peat, iodine and salt. Coastal aftertaste.\n

Comment

As a whisky it’s very enjoyable; however as a blend I feel the peated component is too dominant.
