Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, the whisky presents itself in a dark, russet gold—inviting contemplation before the first sip. Its hue indicates a whisky of maturity and complexity, bearing testament to its masterful blending.
The aroma immediately confronts the senses with a harmonious fusion of peaty smokiness and lighter citrus notes. Underneath, one can discern subtle undertones of dried fruit and spice, which add depth and intrigue to the nose.
On the palate, the whisky asserts itself with an initial burst of smokiness, replete with notes of bonfire and charcoal, perfectly blended with a sweetness that recalls brown sugar and toffee. The combination creates a whisky that is as nuanced as it is powerful, paying homage to the complexity of its peated elements without overwhelming the subtler flavors.
The finish is lengthy and warming, with smoky elements lingering on the palate, complemented by a soft, almost creamy mouthfeel. This whisky leaves you with a final impression of rich, oaky warmth and a delicate spiciness that begs for the next sip.
With a full-bodied but not overbearing texture, the whisky exhibits a harmonious balance that allows its smoky and sweet elements to shine without competing.
