Tasting Notes

"The "Twisted Tattoo" name suggests a burly whisky resides in the bottle, and while that's accurate, this Scotch is elegant and complex, too. Smoky peat comes through initially on the palate, though without overwhelming other flavors. It's complemented by vanilla, stone fruit, brown sugar, and a snappy brininess. Fans of moderately peated whiskies will find a lot to like here."
