Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"The bouquet has big notes of smoke and peat, tempered by a layer of sweetness, vanilla, Jordan almond and honey being most evident. On the palate, notes of apple, pear, cinnamon and lemon peel are evident through a huge smoke flavor that, surprisingly, doesn't dominate this whisky. While the smoke and peat flavors are giant, the sweetness of the fruit notes gives this whiskey great balance. The finish is long, lingering and smoky. "
