Tasting note: Striking deep copper colour – almost sienna brown. Such softly handled brushstrokes of smoke you’ll rarely encounter – and quite beguiling complexity: A delicate mist of peat, though not thick enough to completely obscure underlying notes of leather, pencil shavings, cinnamon, vanilla, manuka honey, orange cake – others may find still more… Genteel delivery, again, soft, almost flaccid peat over sherry. Gains a point intensity wise at the finish with cinnamon and spice adding vibrancy. Fades with bitter dark chocolate and light orange cake. Sedate yet cleverly handled – the ideal dram when you want something peaty without assaulting your senses. 40% Alc./Vol.
