Our Tasting Notes
Nose: The nosing is not an all-out peat assault; it’s more like a gentle nudge of smoke that softly emerged to reveal a candy-salted tail. The sweet, smoky bouquet is then followed by the juicy, sugared fruits of the Chateau d’Yquem Sauternes finish with wet, ripe tobacco and almond milk.
Palate: The initial nosing and sweetness opens the whisky like a flower, delivering vanilla, fresh pears, peaches and cream, eucalyptus and panned butter, with the peat smoke arriving more as a rehearsal than a final act.
Finish: Wave after wave of candied peat smoke from the nosing, with splashes of eucalyptus and cigar leaf making for an elegant farewell.
Conclusion: Spellbinding! A whisky made in the embers of a marshmallow flame.
