Product Description

A limited edition Peated Whisky (11 ppm) from Knockdhu which is named after the spade used to size and separate peat blocks from the Bog and bottled at natural colour and without chill filtering.

Nose: Smoked tropical fruit, pineapple and tinned pears in syrup, some seaweed and chilli flake notes.

Palate: Wasabi and seaweed meet smoked pineapple and pear, hints of leather, spicy vanilla, lime pickle, gooseberry like tartness.

Finish: Refreshing fruit (Green apple, pear and lime) with some wasabi/green chilli heat & spice and earthy/sooty peat smoke.

I would compare this to the likes of peated Benriach, Glenglassaugh Torfa or Kilchoman in style, a very well balanced lightly peated single malt from a distillery not known for its peaty whiskies but on this evidence that may well change.
