Tasting Notes

Nose

A thick coating of peat isn't enough to cover a soft, oaky background. Iodine appears alongside a pear-fruity sweetness. Delicate for a whisky so big.

Palate

Continuous gentle waves of dry peat lap upon the tastebuds but are balanced by a sweet malt middle and the most hesitant of vanillas.

Finish

Long and peaty, the shy vanilla now begins to show as the oak adds a certain dryness.

Comment

A gentle giant.
