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. A word to the wise, scoop up as many bottles as you can find because as of the end of 2013, this has been discontinued.

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. "
