    I am not a big fan of the peated whiskys on the mainland. Only Longrow is an exception.

      Smoke from a campfire, tobacco, fruity.
    • Taste

      Tones of peat smoke, tobacco, leather, vanilla. Not very interesting.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The aftertaste seems very long due to the persistent smoke, but that is not it. No, not my whisky.

    A fine peat, very mineral, like pebbles that slide in the bed of a river. Cereals, a discreet vanilla, some white fruits. On the palate it's a little light, the pepper rises, to explode in a nice finale.

    (Retry from a new bottle)

    N- Open up well with bright sour citrus candy on layer of burnt butter, soft tar, paper ash and whiff of nail polish. Good strength right thru to the back of nose, pleasantly floral, citrus, orange and vanilla. (87/21)

    P- Consistent with the bouquet, sweet smokes with gingery heat and whiff of nail polish on a floral sphere. Earthy, well rounded but narrow, may be it is how this was intended. (86/20)

    F- Medium, ashy, gingery warm with fruity sweet, balanced and unoffensive despite heavily peated. (85/19)

    B/B- 86/20, like the old "Cutter" better.

    Cereal- 2 / Fruity- 3 / Floral- 3 / Peaty- 2 / Feint- 1 / Sulphur- 1 / Woody- 2 / Winery- 2

    Weighted Rate- 80pt

    Fruity & Floral

    The name already reveals that this malt is peated. 40ppm is actually heavily peated. I wonder if this malt will live up to its name. But will you look at that color: pale beyond belief.

    The nose indeed immediately offers lots of peat. Smoke, earth, dried grasses and a bit of salinity. But once you get past this, the malt is surprisingly sweet, fruity and floral. I get vanilla, pear, apple, lime, some liquorice candy and Haribo bears. This is undoubtedly a very young malt.

    I cannot hide it’s young age on the palate either. White fruit, pear drops, freshly cut grass, green earth with the spices that come with it – cardamom, ginger, pepper and salt, heather – followed by something that reminds me of a bouquet of flowers with violets and lilies. But it has to be said: it works.

    The finish is medium long, floral and sweet with some fresh citrus at the death.

    Not a bad AnCnoc, this Peatheart, but I did prefer the Peatlands release.
