Tasting Notes

"The signature peatiness on the nose is woven into the blend as one of many rounded components. But the whisky really sets sail after the first sip. Vanilla sweetness leads a robust smoky charge into a slightly sour bready note. This is a tight peated blend with heavy Bartlett pear syrup and traces of lemon in the finish. It’s this sour citrus note that completes the circle inviting another well-deserved sip. "
