Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"You can almost hear the seagulls flying over Loch Indaal when you open this bottle. The minute the cork is popped: Heavy smoke, bonfire with a wet seaweed beach on the backdrop. The palate is slightly sweeter than expected but continues with the earthy, ashy appeal of the bonfire. With a little time, smoked BBQ pork chops appear as well. The finish is dry, peppery and slightly briny. Not for the faint at heart but definitely a peathead's dream dram."
