Tasting notes of DabblingDrammer:

12. Jun 2020
Nosing: Complex, sweet and slight peat smoke, fresh tin tobacco, a little ocean spray Peat Smoke Tobacco Sweet Maritime Notes

Taste: Sweet and smooth on arrival, a hint of mint and herbal notes leading to a light medicinal peat mid palate, with a pleasant intensity and oakiness. Honey Herbs Mint Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Oak

Finish: long and complex enough. Sweet Maritime Notes Bonfire Smoke

Comment: This is one of the best/most complex 12 year old whiskeys I've had. Highly recommend this to someone who wants to begin trying whiskies with smoky characteristics as the smoky/peat flavours are not too intense and is well integrated with the sweetness of this spirit.

Nosing: Orange Vanilla Fruit Kiwi Sherry - very light Peat Smoke

Taste: Peat Smoke Orange Honey Oak Malt

Finish: Peat Smoke Oak Malt

Comment: This was the whisky that got me into single malts. The balance between fruity, savoury, malty tastes with a gentle peat smoke in the background was something I hadn't experienced before. Doesn't really matter how good whiskies I will taste in the future, I don't think any will make such an impact as this did on the first taste.
