This is another of those independently bottled sourced single malts that isn't allowed to disclose the name of the distillery. They will say it's an Islay whisky, so that narrows it down just a bit. It is bottled at 80 proof by the Vintage Malt Whisky Company and is chill-filtered with added caramel-coloring.

Tasting Notes

"There's a quality on the nose that brings thoughts of a dark room, filled with leather-bound books, large rugs, and cigar smoke. Peat smoke comes into focus on the palate along with a nice balance of sweet apples, moss, and barrel spices. The finish is warm and stays with the smoke to the end."
