Peated Blended Malt100% malted barley from more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"The aroma is full of a sugary-sweet smokiness with some vanilla and coconut notes. The peat smoke comes in a bit stronger on the mid-palate where dried herbs, seawater, and tree bark make appearances. Slightly sweet and oily on your tongue, the finish ends warmly on your throat and a bitter taste on your palate. Having raw oysters with the dram seems a logical thing to do."
