Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/02/2016

Appearance

(sample distilled 2011 and bottled 02/Dec/15) Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma

Light wafts of peaty smoke, cereal and mild spice with faint milk chocolate. Water amplifies bready cereal aromas.

Taste

Initially sweet cereal quickly dries as smoky, lightly peaty and spicy notes take over. Subtler corn-on-the-cob, chocolate, nougat and caramel. Benefits from a splash of water which integrates, sweetens and mellows.

Aftertaste

Long, smoky, faintly salty finish with cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Overall

Youthful and exuberant but with pleasing bready cereal and smoky peat unimpeded by oak.
