An incredibly well-balanced dram, with the coastal characteristics of the component whiskies and just enough smoke to compliment the more elegant flavors.
Nose: rich, dark fruits, bonfire smoke from leafy pine, orange oil come through. lots happening
Palate: Both sweeter and smokier on the palate with wood smoke, blackberry, stewed apple, and hard toffee. Liquorice Allsorts, honeycomb and a dash of mint keep it lively.
Finish: Gently drying with dark chocolate and more of that smoke, dried orange peel and a dash of vanilla
