Product Description

Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

A peated blended malt that uses malt from Laphroaig, Ardmore and Ledaig (Heavily peated Tobermory) and aged in first and re-fill Ex-Bourbon casks.

Nose: Earthy and coastal with notes of oily citrus, anise, seaweed, rock pools, bonfire smoke, chilli flake heat.

Palate: Vegetal, spicy seaweed, briny citrus, earthy & ripe fruit with white pepper.

Finish: Soft and aromatic peat smoke with sweet toffee, sea salt caramel and subtle peppery heat on the end.

Nicely balanced Islay and Highland peat smoke with a coastal element in here as well, more of a friendly or tame monster compared to a pure Islay style malt. Highly recommended offering from the ever reliable Compass Box.
