This dram is a fine example of the different elements one can typically find in maritime whiskies. One of only a handful of distilleries that still do floor maltings of their barley, it is certainly worth paying them a visit to see how it's done.

Tasting Notes

"Aged in predominantly ex-Bourbon barrels, the rich vanilla and chocolate notes really shine through here. Tastes of salty caramel, beef jerky, and gentle peat smoke are crystal clear. Such a soft and sweet dram, if you've hated peated whisky in the past, this could make you a convert."
