Soft smoke at first, a mixture of log fire, toasted biscuit and Darjeeling tea. This gives way to a mixed tropical fruit with nectarine, melon and mango. There’s underlying creaminess with vanilla, honey and a note of burnt orange with resinous wood.
Long with sweet honey and vanilla. Peat smoke and leather return at the very end.
A well balanced, complex whisky. The peat flavours of smoke, tea and toast are well matched with mixed tropical fruit, cream and a long, honeyed finish.
