The brand that makes the peatiest whiskies in the world, this is smoky with exceptional fruit flavours. The cask integration has made this whisky very soft given the strength, while the smoke is incredibly dense, leaving flavours of sweet barbecue that linger for an age. This was awarded an impressive 92/100 by Whiskyfun's Serge Valentin who described it as a 'pretty brilliant coastal whisky'.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    • Nose

      Surprisingly restrained at first, with the peat only fighting its way through after a few seconds. Iodine and brine are joined by notes of cereal and nectarine.

    • Palate

      In contrast to the nose, the peat comes through first in the mouth. It offers a large amount of salinity, combined with an herbaceousness (eucalyptus) and a smack of malt (grist).

    • Finish

      Long, rich and tongue tingling. The warmth diminishes, but the peat smoke continues right to the very end.

    • Comment

      A classic Oc, this is, on paper, incredibly peaty, yet the superb balance between the smoky and herbal notes means it’s not overly noticeable on the palate and has an unexpected elegance. If you’ve never tried anything this smoky before, then treat yourself.
