This is a marriage of two expressions from one unknown distillery, one heavily peated, one not peated, the whole then finished in French oak Tuscan wine casks.
Nose: Surprisingly little smoke on the nose, but instead light fruity notes come through.
Palate: Instantly there is peat smoke and spice (a distant campfire, black pepper, liquorice, oak and then the sea breeze) slowly this is balanced with the dry fruit from the Tuscan red wine casks (blackcurrant, blackberry, raspberry and cherries) all blending together leaving a tantalising, lingering taste of what is to come, a long lingering finish that on closing your eyes takes you to Raasay.
