Notes by producer;


Peaty whisky isn’t all about smoke. As the spirit matures, the smokiness develops, creating very different flavours. At this distillery, the most famous result is tropical fruit, and Lp3 is a marriage of two vintages, selected to maximise the fruitiness.

Cask details;
A mixture of vintages from the late 1990's aged in traditional hogsheads.

Tasting Notes;

Nose
Sweet and fruity with only a hint of smoke to start. Medicinal and peaty notes – bandages and TCP – build behind the sweetness, with prickly spice and dark chocolate flashes. The fruit is definitely the star, with apples, pears and bananas roasted in the embers of a barbecue.
  • Palate
    Thick, sweet and syrupy in texture, with ashy smoke, medicinal peat, prickly spice and dark chocolate supporting the sweetness. On top are layers of fruit and toffee – apples, orange and a hint of lychee.
  • Finish
    Day-old fireplaces, filled with peat and wood ash, fade and sweeten, revealing apple tarte Tatin.
