Taste note

  • Colour:

    Gold

  • Nose:

    There’s some toasted oak, there is some coffee, there’s some charcoal, and there’s a very distant and almost exclusive Caol-Ila-ness, which comes unexpected from the owners. What I also get, mostly, is a wonderful artisan cider, like they make in the best parts of Normandy. Old premium cigars. With water: It’s smoked cider of the highest order.

  • Palate:

    Neat pallet with sweet Vishnu! This is implacable, sharp, acrid, oaky ( in a good way), mercurochromy spirit from Islay. Much bigger, powerful, and almost aggressive than expected. With water: Smoother, gentler, civilized. Smoke and rosehips.

  • Finish:

    Long, and earthy, and great. It strikes back.
