Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) A dollop of rich clotted cream spread over apple crumble, infused with delicious, sweet waves of heather burning on the hillside.
Flavour Apricot jam and greengage plums with a contrasting warmth of freshly cracked black pepper. A subtle and delicate smouldering peat ember smokiness flows through the palate. The delicate, sweet nature of Highland peat marries harmoniously with the distinctive spirit and cask interaction found in octave maturation.
