Label standouts are the designations of Barrel Number, Bottle Number, Date Barreled, and Date Bottled which something we'd like to see all “small batch” distillers doing.

Tasting Notes

"Caramelized barley lends to a peaty backbone that barely gives the smoke any legs at all. The proof is subtle and lends to a vegetal green pepper/purple radish flavor before the peat picks up again. It ends with a molasses and smoked banana fruitiness similar to 15-20 year aged rums, no doubt due to the French ex-port barrel. "
