  1. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    No, we're not in Islay, but you'd be forgiven for thinking so. The giveaway is that this is one that is perhaps more peaty than smoky. Still, despite being from the Highlands, this shows all of the characteristic coastal notes associated with Islay; again, however, the peat presents without Islay's full on phenolic punch and specific character. Instead, you have lots of wet rock, brine, char grilled fish and fruit, some nice peppery notes, and an underlying nuttiness that ties it all together.

    Smooth, but undoubtedly still quite bold.
