A peated bottling from Goa's John Distilleries, produced using peat imported from Scotland and bottled at cask strength, with phenolic level of approx 30ppm.
Sampled on 20/10/2014
(sample bottled in 2013) Clear and bright (clouds with water), light-mid golden amber.
Light peat and rich cereal with delicate fragrant oak and faint nuttiness. Water releases more creamy cereal notes.
Honeyed sweetness softens hickory and peaty smoke, and the peppery spice of the cask strength with roasted cocoa. A splash of water calms and brings this big malt into kilter, revealing orange marmalade notes.
Long, lightly peaty with lingering honeyed notes.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
