    I’m not all too sure what I was expecting from this, but pretty sure it wasn’t this. Yes, the peat is there, but it sort of leads the way for a fantastic parade of flavours. It’s accessible and easy drinking (relatively speaking, obviously) and really nuanced and complex at the same time. Very more-ish, a paradox in a glass, and nothing short of superb.

      Soft and sweet peat notes accompany a wide range of sensations and aromas: coconut chips, chocolate, honey, citrus and underneath it all there ‘s the signature Campbeltown funk. I get grassy-earthy notes as well, alongside vanilla and a slight lemony sourness. Although the high ABV isn’t aggressive in any way, this baby does even better with just a few drops of water. The sweeter notes really jump out now in a lovely combo with the peat, with a brilliant oily-citrus-y aroma.

      The palate again starts with a soft arrival. Yes the peat is obvious, but never becomes overly dominant. On the contrary it’s a bit of a ‘fille rouge’ throughout the whole experience. A soft wood note gives it a bit of a dry mouthfeel, and the dirty /earthy notes are more prominent, but after the added water the fruit notes (citrus, tropical fruit like mango) come forward against an ashy undertone.

      long, dry, ashy and peaty and it needs the water to bring out the citrus, some nuts and a dry oaky/woody note.
