A blended Scotch malt containing at least 10 single malts, with the signature malt coming from Islay to give top notes of sweet smoke, salt and peat. Nonchillfiltered and bottled at 46%.
Nose: Lighter than expected with the peat smoke a bit ashy (chimneys anyone?), smoked kippers and some oak. The smoke is well balanced and does not overpower the malt.
Palate: Green fruits like apples and pears along with chocolate and toffee with the smoke presence still in check.
Finish: A continued blend of sweet smoke and savoury malt. Slightly drying.
