Distilled in India, this single malt is made from Scottish barley that has been malted and dried in an intense peat kiln at Port Ellen. Impressively mature, this version is clearly a serious competitor for the symbolic title of the world’s best young peated whisky.
Nose : powerful. Notes of camphor, roasted walnuts, citrus fruit (lemon) and spices.
Palate : round. Aromas of peat and smoke. Notes of coffee and milk chocolate. Opens with candied fruit (pear, apple) and heady florals.
Overall : long. Vegetal and herbaceous notes followed by tar and disinfectant.
