Tasting notes from the Distillery:
"Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Bigg, but seductively gentle,too..
Taste: The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vauge sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) – the custard presumably is oaky vanilla – hammers home that barley – fruitiness to makefor a bit of free-for-all but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolute resonates through the palate.
Finish: A slight struggle here as the mouthfeel gets a bit puffy here with the dry peat and oak; enough molassed sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end, tough. Above all the spices, rather than lying down and accepting their fate, rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit."
