Product Description

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

"Sweet,fresh and quite subtle on the nose, green and grassy. Like soft velvet coating your mouth,sweet but not honey,more like peach in heavy syrup. Medium finish with the peat being very much in the background. Roasted almond toward the end."

Maybe it's a shame that the new official 25 year old isn't at cask strength, but don't let that put you off, this still is a fantastic dram with some well balanced interplay between peat, oak fruit and spice. Age has given this some tarrier, darker, ashy notes whilst still rertaining its elegant and oily distillery quality.
