Tasting Notes

"Hints of peat, hay, and ocean air come out on the nose of this Swedish single malt. It's gently smoky on the palate, with notes of toffee, almond, honey, sea salt, and a bit of toasted bread. The finish is mellow, encouraging another sip. High Coast's Dálvve Sherry Influence is a wonderful introduction to the brand -- very nicely balanced, with enough peat to keep things interesting without getting overwhelming -- and bodes of good things to come. Single malt enthusiasts who pick up a bottle will likely be quite pleased with the result."
