Tasting Notes

Nose

Dry, but phenolic peat, tar and creosote with hints of burnt heather and ginger. Beneath lies sweet barley and tight European(?) oak notes along with toffee, grainy dried fruit, manure and smoke.

Palate

Dry, dusty peat with a hint of Bowmore-esque violets. Intense and smoky, with tar and creosote. Barley gives sweetness and the oak adds gritty tannins.

Finish

Long, lingering peat smoke, salt and gentle oak vanillins.

Comment

Intense and primal. Those Swedes have come up with a cracker again!
