Batch 4 was discovered when developing its predecessor. The Tasting Panel sampled a number of blended recipes at different proportions, strengths and ages and some of the younger blends were among the highest scoring. This 7-year old recipe is born from both barrels and hogsheads from Islay and Speyside, and features a stronger Islay influence than its older namesake.

The nose enticed with vanilla, pineapple and white chocolate, while a sweet dustiness reminded one panellist of chalk board dusters. We found a distinct maritime edge, smoked salted butter and old fashioned straw pressed cider. The peat smoke lead on the palate accompanied by salty peanut brittle, caramelised red apples and watermelon jelly. A splash of water brought toasted (borderline smoky) coconut, while soft minty notes gave way to lightly smoked white fish. The palate was slightly drying at first with a building sweet intensity. Flakes of sea salt were lightly sprinkled onto tropical fruit making for a sweet and savoury crescendo fitting of this regional marriage.
