    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 222 bottles from Cask No.  3946This whisky has been made with heavily peated malt, in the same stills as its sister, Slaney.  Like the Slaney sample, it has been matured in a vigorous first-fill ex-Bourbon cask, so a comparison between the two provides an opportunity to measure the effects of peating on this malt whisky.  The colour is orange-gold; the nose-feel mild; the unreduced nose of dry peat and fresh cow-pats, developing towards the rich pastoral scents of a milking byre.  The cows are banished when water is added, however, and replaced by carbolic soap, coal tar, new rubber and wet leather – robust, old-fashioned bathroom scents, one might say.  The flavour is very smooth and very sweet.  Smoky in the finish, with some soapiness and lingering carbolic.  In a blind tasting you would place it as an Islay, but you would be foxed to say which, because of the big sweetness.
