Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Some earthy peat smoke and dark fruit, fig and a hint of mulled wine spice. Opens up to aromas of roasted coffee, citrus and chocolate.
Finish The finish sees a return of the earthy peat smoke and figs. The chocolate and vanilla shine through along with some salty, sandy character.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Palate (without water) As soon as this dram touches your lips you feel the soft oily texture and then, as it coats the palate a subtle dryness changes the tone. The leading notes from the Oloroso cask and the peat smoke define the identity of the whisky but underneath there is a fruity sweetness – figs, orange and peach with a nutty nougat note. With another sip the darker notes of tobacco, boot polish and more earthy smoke give a pepperiness that really draws you into this magnificent whisky.
