In the glass, this single malt presents a lush, amber-gold hue—a visual prelude to its complexity and refinement. The viscosity hints at its full-bodied nature and the layered experience that awaits.
The initial nosing reveals a rich tapestry of aromas. Malted barley is at the forefront, closely followed by nuanced notes of briny sea spray, fresh-cut hay, and a whiff of peat smoke. These are rounded off by softer aromas of citrus fruits and honey.
The first sip introduces an intricately balanced palate, blending the maritime influences of Campbeltown with the richness of aged malt. Flavors of creamy vanilla and honey are enlivened by more mineral notes of wet slate and a mild, smoky peatiness. Additional layers reveal hints of green apple and a trace of salted caramel.
The finish is notably long and warming, echoing the mineral and smoky nuances that make Campbeltown whiskies distinct. As the flavors recede, they leave behind a lasting impression of toasted oak and salted almonds.
This 10-year-old Scotch has a mouthfeel that is as complex as its flavor profile—rich, oily, and yet delightfully smooth. The higher ABV does not overpower but instead accentuates the myriad of flavors, offering an intense yet balanced experience.
