Multiple award winner, a must for any lover of peat!
Dividing whiskys lover for generations, This big bold Islay whisky isn't for everyone, but if you like a smoky whisky with lots of character then this is it!
Nose: This opens on big smoky peat notes. There are spices, and aniseed, as well as a big dose of salt. This whisky has become slightly sweeter in recent years, and it appears beautifully on the nose, amidst the classic iodine/sticking plasters and cool wood smoke we love.
Palate: Seaweed-led, with a hint of vanilla bean and more than a whiff of notes from the first aid box (TCP, plasters etc). The oak is big, and muscles its way into the fore as you hold this whisky over your tongue. An upsurge of spices develop – cardamom/black pepper/chilli.
Finish: Big and drying, as the savoury, tarry notes build up with an iodine complexity.
