Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"Exactly what you’d expect, this is big on peat and campfire smoke, as well as a hint of smoked bacon. A whiff of salty sea spray too, but also vanilla and white chocolate. On the palate the high alcohol percentage shows. Much more peaty than the nose, with black pepper, ginger and fresh citrus to boot. Finally an intense, peaty finish. Drying. Islay enthusiasts will like this."
