Notes

On first nosing it was clear that this whisky would make no apologies for its rugged nature. Along with heavy smoke (oil rigs and exhaust fumes!), we found a light seaweed note, raw peanuts in their skins, glazed balsamic sausages, brown sauce and toasted bread. To taste, spade loads of peat, limestone gravel, sea spray and again a meaty note (sweet pork and caramelised onions). With water the onions were pickled and being eaten with chips wrapped in newspaper on a pier. Aromas of boat fumes, iodine, smoky ice cream, paint and engine oil. The palate was now sweet and salty with thick grey plumes of peat smoke rumbling on forever.
