Tasting Notes

"Sweet peat smoke with notes of vanilla, lemon peel, bran and draff, but also a whiff of tobacco, heather and hemp rope. The palate is pleasantly smoky with a touch of charcoal and diesel, but also somewhat salty and with bright citrus zest. A straightforward peated malt that's clearly very balanced, but could do with a little more complexity."
