Tasting Notes

"A well-balanced nose with a decent salinity, chimney smoke and smoked barley husks, with a touch of dried seaweed and lemons. Notes of grilled pineapple too. The palate is very ashy and a hint of tar with some vegetal peat notes and licorice root. There’s some pickled lemon too, followed by crème caramel. A nice Big Peat but it doesn't stand out much among all the other releases over the years."
