    Not chill-filtered. No artificial colour added. Matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. Terroir: entire process of production carried out at the distillery. Slow thick primary legs, slowly forming into straight narrow trails. Very slow midsize secondary legs. Droplets. High quality whisky, very high quality-price ratio. Characterful single malt: characteristic of both the distillery and the region. Holds water well.
    • Nose
      Fruity: citrus: orange, lemon; pear, tropical fruit: pineapple, dry fruit: raisin, stone fruits: apricot. Smoky: wood smoke, char, slight medicinal notes. Cereal: malted barley, grain dust, dough. Sweet: honey, confectionary notes, vanilla. Winey: sherry cask influence. Nutty: almonds. Feints: funk: sour tang, pickled cheese, sour cabbage; tobacco, leather. Earthy: damp leaves, dust notes, must, mineral notes, sulfur. Savoury. Woody: toasted and charred oak. Spicy: mint on cold nose: high ABV influence, pepper, ginger, clove. Floral: fragrant, heather honey, light hay notes. Maritime: sea air, salt, iodine. Oily: cream. Rich: crisp. Full body. An excellent nose. Water smooths the nose, pushes up the funky notes, but decreases its richness.
    • Taste
      Sweet: honey, toffee, salted caramel. Fruity: citrus: lemon, tangerine; fresh fruits: pear, stone fruit: apricot, peach. Spicy: black pepper, chili, mint. Maritime: salt and brine on the midpalate, seashells. Smoky: peat, bonfire, lightly smoked meat, slight medicinal notes. Savoury: meatiness, mushrooms. Woody: toasted oak, mild tannins. Dry. Rich: intense. Full body: balanced, well integrated. Water extends the transition.
    • Finish
      Long: Vaporizing. Smoky: peat, smoked meat. Spicy: white pepper. Woody: char, oak tannins. Sweet: honey, salted caramel, confectionery. Fruity. Satisfying: warming. Surprisingly, water extends the finish as well.
