Tasting Notes

Nose

Big, with a distinct whiff of peat fire.

Palate

Immediately spicy and quite sweet with the toasty malt hitting the taste buds hard. A sublime oiliness spreads over the palate allowing the cocoa oakiness to catch hold.

Finish

Long and effortlessly oaky with burnt raisins adding a lovely bittersweet twist.

Comment

An absolute gem whose enormity at first disguises its remarkable charm and complexity.
