Batch 4 was matured in 80% ex bourbon and 20% ex-sherry casks and bottled at 58.6%.
Nose – A strong maritime influence evokes memories of fishing boats in the harbour and sea salt being carred on the wind. The sweet peat smoke is intense and welcoming as it fills the glass, like a smouldering blackened marshmallow on the campfire. There is a floral earthiness reminiscent of our native blooming white heather.
Palate – It's complex whisky and tastes beyond its years. Peat smoke dominates with malty undertones of crushed digestive biscuits. A liquorice note develops as it opens up and there isa hint of sweetness, like sticky honey glazing.
Finish – The finish is long with the strong peat smoke influence remaining alongside malty, cereal characteristics. A slight oakiness is detectable and coastal maritime floavurs endure.
