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: Dried cherry, melted butter, cassia, and a floral waft or two.
Palate: Spiced fruit compote, raspberry ripple ice cream, caramel, and a pinch of pepper.
Finish: Softly oaky on the finish, with continued vanilla.
