Tasting Notes

Nose

Winey and rich, softly oaked with an almost oily peatiness. Fabulous heathery depth with an almost flower-scented sweetness, this is the kind of malt that would send bees into a frenzy.

Palate

Fabulously fat and oily and then a massive wave of intensely sweet malt followed by wave upon wave of the most gentle peat. Thick, intense, uncompromising and chewy.

Finish

Long, peaty and intense with heather and oak. Some late cocoa adds further depth.

Comment

There is no mention as to whether this is Scapa or Highland Park, but this cannot be anything other than the elder statesman of the two. This is uncompromising, ultra-rich from the old school. A real stunner.
