    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 254 bottles from cask no. 303804
    Taken from an active 1st fill bourbon barrel, this has a deep gold colour with mild beading. A surprisingly mellow nose for one so strong, reminiscent of sun-kissed, peeling yacht varnish and bath salts. Overall, a very fresh and rounded nose. Extremely sweet to taste, with a buttery and herbal complexity. Smoldering moss and scented fires on the open moor give way to dried herbs and sphagnum moss. The fragrant smoke continues with the addition of a little water, and a thick mouth texture, both smooth and rich, finishes sweet and long.

    • Nose
      Peat, tangerine, sweet lime and apple. Quite shy for a peated whisky at this strength and age.
    • Taste
      Peaty and spicy. Orange, apple and gingerbread. With water bigger on ginger.
    • Finish
      Peat, gingerbread, dark chocolate and apple.

    Extremely sweet to the taste...really (tasting notes by Adelphi)? That is exaggerated, it is sweet, but in honey,mossy,smokey kind of a way. And it's only in the arrival. You'r left wanting sweetness and more complexity.
