- Nose: Fresh bread, peat smoke, licorice. Present of tar, well integrated. sandalwood and cedar. Very pleasant.
Palate: Full body, intense and lively peat, accompanied by black pepper and a slight flavor. At the same time, cereals return, combined with licorice and vanilla. A touch of citrus and spices.
Finale: Medium-long, with citrus fruits, wood spices, peat, licorice and light vanilla.
- Supposedly distilled at Glenturret.
- Peated dram, quite different from the usual peat: it misses embers, smoke and salt but It is still quite pleasent. The young age influenced negatively in my opinion both body and finish.
Emergency room smell with gauze and iodine predominant. Then shoes polish comes up.
Intrigating peat, but the body is quite weak
The finish is not that long although it keeps the unusual dry peat
- Roumored to be a peated Glenturret
- Beathan 2010-17 Heavy Peat E.S.
From a Gaelic word meaning "life", this robust single malt comes from one of Scotland's oldest distilleries, located in the southern Highlands. Renowned for its traditional fruity and flowery style, this distillery once in a while also makes a heavily peated batch, for a little known and very unusual expression that is particularly surprising, fiery and explosive especially when young. This bottling is dominated by intense notes of smoke, ash, tar, leather, liquorice and sandalwood, all perfectly complementing the natural juicy sweetness of the malt. It’s a particularly intriguing
experience to be able to taste an example of a whisky made with peat not harvested on the coast, with its very different flavours compared to the malts from Islay: less salty and maritime, but earthier and mossier.
