  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes by producer;
    Creamy and generous, but with a noticeable kick on the palate, this coastal whisky combines ripe tropical fruits with more serious flavours of tar and brine. 986 bottles have been produced from three barrels of 2007 distillate.

    Tasting Notes;

    Cask details;
    Vatting of three ex-bourbon barrels.

    Nose
    Caramel-coated flapjacks and stewed apples with vanilla sugar form a sweet contrast to astringent, slightly medicinal, smoke.

    Palate
    Full-bodied with ripe mango, pineapple and grilled peaches. There’s a salty, coastal edge to the fruit flavours, followed by dry barley husks, coal tar and gravel.

    Finish
    Lengthy notes of dry peat, white pepper and olive oil, sweetened with honey.

    Nose friendly, quite fresh, lemony, sherry and bourbon, mouth very suave, heavy finish that moves without tearing.
