Nose: Waves of smoky bacon and sticky glazed ham are followed by dried fruit characteristics that give way to soft peat smoke.
Palate: Rich, fruity and spicy. Notes of ginger loaf, fresh ripe cherries and
sultanas. Hints of cloves, dark chocolate and a refreshing menthol note.
Finish: A lasting finish of nostalgic buttered brown toast, espresso and ashy peat smoke. A lasting, earthy character reminiscent of the distillery’s dunnage warehousing.
