Tasting Notes

"Peat, because of course, but fairly sweet overall, with plenty of vanilla extract and a bit of smoked marzipan. Finally, a whiff of cured meat as well. The palate has a sweet arrival too (cherry syrup), followed by intense peat smoke and even a bit of iodine. Great cask strength peat bomb on a budget."
