Appearance – Light straw in colour, clings really nicely to the glass, drops slow running thick legs.
Nose – Cream soda, Lemonade, Icing sugar, medium strength peat, very slight Germoline, Vanilla, Lemon sherbert sweets, Slight Bonfire Ash, Cranberries.
Palate – Dark fruity peat, Bonfire Ash, White pepper, Ginger, Fig, Raisins, Orange rind, Slight Germoline, Wood tannins.
Finish – Medium to long, pepper, Orange and Ginger spice, loverly wood tannins again.
My thoughts – This is a loverly whisky imo, nice ratio of peat, spice, tannins and fruit, and very easily drinkable at cask strength.
Would I buy a bottle? – Yes, it has plenty of flavour, excellent Abv, and very enjoyable.
