Nose: toffee biscuit aromas and the expected wet stones, farmyard aromas and classic candle wax, before developing more complexity in the glass - we found rosehip syrup, blackcurrant flower and some icing sugar and cakespice aromas, along with some pleasant tweedy oak.
Palate: pretty big, with a surge of sweet fruit compote before the phenols finally arrived – a glowering, dry smokiness expanding rapidly on the tastebuds.
Finish: Dominant smoke with ashy notes.

I have drunk this (or at least a dram - after which I got a bottle with the intention of drinking it rather than collecting it). Absolutely stunningly complex whisky which changed many times throughout the hour we spent together. Smoke and peat are there at the end in perfect balance. How did anyone ever think it was a good idea to close this distillery?
