Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Sniffing campfire that’s been out a few hours, musty, old Colonial house
  • Taste: Very soft, peat not predominate (more on the nose), leather bound books
  • Finish: Struck match flavor lives long
  • Comments: Wow, that’s good! Peat is present but syncs with the greater presence of flavors. This is a scotch I'd definitely buy; with water, a nose full of ash, peat devolves into mushrooms, and fades to black. Excellent!
