Tasting Notes

Nose

Bracing and intense. Sea-spray and sawdust and the lightest of smoke. Marvellously evocative and appealing.

Palate

Fat, massively bodied with powerful peat that was missing on the nose. The saltiness seeps through and the malts remains clean and chewy.

Finish

Intense vanilla and then drier oaky tones battle against the lingering sweet peat.

Comment

What a fabulous whisky of extraordinary complexity and wonderful balance. Masterful.
