Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky reveals itself in a luscious, deep amber hue, almost bordering on copper. When swirled, it leaves intricate legs trickling down the glass, indicative of its textured mouthfeel and substantial body.
The nose bursts with complexity, laden with rich, smoky notes harmoniously interwoven with aromatic layers of dried fruit, leather, and a touch of seaside brine. These are all framed by an elegant waft of fragrant oak, introducing a whisky that promises complexity and depth.
The mouth is greeted by a luxurious and full-bodied experience. Intense flavors of peat, charred oak, and dark chocolate blend perfectly with subtler undertones of apple, cinnamon, and caramel. The smokiness is there but doesn't overwhelm, allowing room for these other nuanced elements to play out.
The finish is enduring and remarkably satisfying. The complex array of flavors ebb gradually, leaving a lingering trace of smoke, spice, and a final touch of maritime saltiness. It exits as it entered: with sophistication and fullness, yet rounded off by an unanticipated smoothness.
Thick and oily, the whisky exhibits a weightiness that adds depth and dimension to its diverse flavor spectrum. This richness enhances each note, making it a whisky that continually unfolds with every sip.
