    It is also interesting to try a new make (without any barrel influences). of course, in contrast to the "unpeated" filling smokier and peatier.
    • Nose
      Subtle smoke and peat aromas rise, wet cereals and slightly sweetish hints end in a light fruity note. The alcohol is noticeable here and there.
    • Taste
      Mild and slightly smoky, peat and grain are slowly added.
    • Finish
      Slightly smoky, subtly bitter and bitter. The grain note can be found in the end, a slight freshness arises.

    This is a miniature I bought after my first Annandale tour [WLP] for The Foz back in 2017. We ended up opening it on Islay more than a year later and I end up writing about more than a year after that. Speedy I am not!

    TAKE 1 [2.5cl]

    C: Clean gin/vodka-like, the copper showing vibrantly. I like the neutrality. The peatiness really doesn’t show after Laphroaig’s Open Day [WLP]. 2.5cl proves enough for today.

    TAKE 2 [the 2nd 2.5cl tried ten months later].

    N: After three lovely single cask Caol Ila’s [WLP], this would be a test for any young [Lowland’s] spirit. What’s apparent is the peachy new make character is most reminiscent of the first new make I ever tried at Lagavulin in 2013. With concentrated peach juice [Porn Star martini styley], we’ve dried mango, wash, a peaty yeastiness and copper. What more can you ask for from un-aged barley spirit? It’s as candid as you like, but those sugars impress along with an overall sense of cohesion.
    T: Brash coppery spirity yet sugary arrival [neat], with some sweet porridge naturally. More peachy on the turn with peas and old dry vanilla pods.
    F: Drying with bitter metallic peach juice kept in a cold kettle. Occasionally, bitter almonds at the death.
    C: I’ve got high expectations for Annandale’s peated spirit. Let’s hope it ages well and they get it in some good casks.


    Here are my more up-to-date reflections of Annandale's spirit in 2019:

    I really liked this whisky, a very creamy peaty new make, will be very interesting to see what it is like at 5 and 10 years old.

    Great potential.

    A peaty tribute to Robert the Bruce

    N: That solid 45ppm peat coupled with the fruity spirit work very well – an ideal marriage.
    T: Same fizz as the first but here the spirit & peat provide more cohesion (though still equally autonomous), with some mouthfeel developing already. Theres a longer travel too
    F: A longer finish too, the peat bringing out the barley more than the non-peated spirit.
    C: This is so ready for oak, almost begging. Appears much ‘more’ than the non-peated version. Exciting!
