[62.0%・15 Years Old・Distilled in 1992・Bottled in 2007・Official Bottling・Cask No. 400600・Single Cask Release]
A stately and proper sense of oak. The peat combines well with the oak; tobacco leaves, dried porcini and wet sand with a spray of brine.
Palate & Finish:
A deep and sharp stroke of acidic fruits together with a gentler underlying dose of brown sugar syrup and marzipan. The oak tannins are at work amidst the intense sweetness.
A firm and spicy burn that transitions into a much gentler, creamy finish of piccolo and some lingering iodine..
Stylistically quite like the virgin oak cask bottled by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society a few years ago, but that cask was exceptional. Still, another solid virgin oak cask by the distillery..
