Tasting Notes

"Very light and gentle peat with a nice earthy touch, but also apricots, vanilla pods and peaches. There's a whisper of melted butter and pralines too. The palate has a creamy texture and good balance between the sherry and peaty notes. The subtle spices (pepper, nutmeg) enhance the dried red fruits, creosote and diesel oil. More depth and richness compared to it's younger sibling."
