Picked up on clearance. I'm new to peated scotch so this is interesting. Peaty and a little rubbery almost. Nose is very mellow and semi-sweet. I finally understand the bandaid taste note. Cheers to new experiences and clearance sales.
Great if you want to edge your way into peat. Subtle smoke after some warm slightly fruity notes.
fresh earthy peat and spice layer over my and sweet fruits. very well balanced with moderate linger in the finish of autumn leaves
2nd favourite blend
Smoke Leather Icing sugar Dried fruit especially peel Sugar dusted jelly babies Strong Tea Royal icing This is a large slice of Christmas cake eaten in front of a roaring coal fire
Left to breathe & warm it becomes oily
Reliable compass box quality even in their more affordable blends. Well balanced peat and dried fruit notes present but not dominating. Personally recommended over the artist's blend.
smooth with a great oak taste
