Appearance : Bright golden yellow like sunshine
Nose : On the first nose, damp earth with some smoke trailing off with floral and herbaceous notes. Allowed to breathe, stone fruits start to emerge and gradually the scent of butterscotch and vanilla takes over.
Palate : Nice and warming mouthfeel. Initial notes barbeque but not overwhelming followed by cinnamon and nutmeg along with orange peel comes to mind followed by caramel and vanilla.
Finish : A chewy, lingering creamy finish that lasts a long time.
Overall : A very elegant peated whisky that everyone can enjoy whether you are a peat lover or not.
