Peated to 11.1%
Tasted: Dec 2015
An intensely crisp and almost briny nose with green apple and a touch of honey. Not as full and fruity as previous peated releases. It feels more like the 12 year old with a little peat, but could almost pass for old skool Caol Ila. The peat is gentle and almost medicinal in character but it’s balanced by some lovely Sauvignon Blanc-esque grassiness, barley and minerals.

The palate is crisp and fresh but a little more sweet oak and honey gives it a fuller feel. Quite minerally with barley, apricot, subtle, smoky peat and heather. Like the nose it feels like the 12 year old with a touch of peat. Long and mouth-watering with hints of unsweetened pineapple and banana. The minerality really kicks in on the finish but the honey balances and the peat lingers.
