The Cask Strength bottling will vary per batch, but will be somewhere in the 114-117 proof range. Aged in used barrels for 10 years, the whisky is barrier filtered, meaning just large chunks of char are removed leaving the whisky to shine on its own. As it is minimally filtered, adding water or changes in temperature will create a haze in the whisky.

Tasting Notes

"Drinking this whisky neat is not necessarily a bad or difficult thing to do, but adding water really does create dimension and complexity to the dram. Sea spray, kippers, peat smoke, and leather come about on the nose and continue on to the taste. There is a soft roundness to the whisky as it sits in your mouth and is moderately oily. Peat and sweet malt intertwine and linger on the finish."
