Tasting Notes

"The peat smoke is present, but not aggressively so. This allows the drinker to find the lemony citrus notes along with the maritime sea air and buttery toffee. The saltiness allows the mouth to water making this a suitable before dinner whisky. All in all, while there isn't a tremendous amount of depth to be found, it is pleasant both on the tongue and your pocketbook."
