Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

22. Jun 2019
Peat is certainly not the first thing which comes to your mind when thinking of Lowland whiskies. As a relatively new distillery built for the production of blends, Ailsa Bay surprised with this release. Notes of wet hay, floral peat smoke and burned moss form the nose. Water brings out citrus, sweet BBQ and hints of fennel. The taste falls a bit flat: aromatic peatiness, grapefruits and heather honey struggle with the youthfulness of the spirit. Bitter lemon, salted licorice and mineral peat remain in the long finish. A promising start despite the lack of maturity.
