Type: Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Islay
Strength: 57.3% ABV
A limited edition second release at 167ppm. Aged in ex-bourbon and ex-Grenache Blanc wine barrels for a minimum of 10 years. Nose: Masses of smoky, earthy peat. Deft wafts of sweet citrus peels and chocolate come along a little bit later. Palate: Boom – a big kick of maritime smoke arrives first and continues all the way through. Slight peppery warmth and a touch of honeydew melon.
Finish: Long and vegetal, with a hint of buttered brown bread.
