This is lovey, my sort of whisky when a whisky is this elegant at 43% it shows that higher strength is not needed, the balance is great on show here, nothing out of step.
Beautiful to be honest, stewed fruits galore, mango, peach, plum hints of orange but to go with that is brine and a little peat.
Warm French pastry, fresh out the oven, and then something a little herbal and little floral with a returning biscuit note.
If you leave it for 15 minutes some sweet cigar smoke emerges.
Fizzy and fruity is my first impression the fruit is is the front of the palate and coats your tongue, syrupy if you like and the fruit that the nose suggested is in the palate and then some.
The fruit is not sharp but like a well stewed fruit cocktail.
The peat is kept in check by the fruit and the is a lovely salted caramel note that adds to the overall profile.
Very elegant, sweet, fruity with the peat growing but always in the background.
