Tasting Notes

Nose

Smoky. Has weight and touches of complexity. Wood ash, spent campfire, fig, coffee. Peat-dominant.

Palate

Very peaty (certainly when compared to everything else on show) and powdery peat at that. Sweet and light with firm oak. A bit confused.

Finish

Oak and smoke.

Comment

Some will love the combination of a cult malt, alcohol, great age and smoke but I'm not so convinced.
