Tasting Notes

"This whisky seems as if it was pulled out of the hearth of a fireplace. The nose greets you with a cloud of soot and ash. When the cloud clears you’ll find dry heather and lemon tarts. The palate is a voluptuous oily brine that coats your tongue quickly. There’s smoldering malt on the mid-palate seasoned with a fistful of eye-widening white pepper. The finish wavers between vanilla custard and dry smoke. Adding water doesn’t seem to reduce the heat but it will bring out more lemon tarts and white pepper."
