Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

Nose: Some initial savoury notes, then a fresh cereal aroma, alongside some fresh-cut apple peel.  Becomes waxy, with faint peat and hints of chamois leather and some doughy and cardboard notes.  With time, a biscuity shortbread note appears.  Complex and absorbing.

Palate:  Medium-full. A dusty entry, with a big raw peat and cereal hit, then sweetcorn and an explosion of chilli, ginger and pepper.  This is mouthwatering and amazingly lively for a malt of this age.

Finish:  Continues to develop, with bitter orange zest and vegetal notes.  The cereal and peat notes persist, although the citrus wins out in the end.

Comments:  A fascinating bottling, with a vibrancy not often found in malts of this age, alongside a delicious and complex palate.
