Only 6,000 sleek black bottles of this single malt were produced. It's bottled at 46% ABV.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"A subtle brine and peat smoke intertwine with a hint of rubber and a touch of varnish. The delicate nose also has a fruitier side with apple juice and grapes. The peat smoke on the palate is very soft. There's ash and tar, as well as smoked salmon, ginger, and a thin fruity layer. The finish is soft and gentle. Medium in length."
