Though they claim this is unpeated, it actually should be qualified as barely peated; it has a 3-7 ppm level. It is aged initially in ex-bourbon casks for 7 years before being finished in red Grenache wine barrels.

Tasting Notes

"The red wine finishing has given this dram a pink hue. The nose is savory with a smoky, meaty quality along with bright red fruit and salt. This proceeds on the palate and has a creamy texture along with it. What remain on the finish are fruity smoke and gentle wood spices. "
