Producer's Tasting Notes
Appearance: Vivid harvest gold.
Nose: A delightful aroma of ripe gooseberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.
Palate: Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugars, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.
Conclusions: A unique marriage of crisp fruit and barley-laden Highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke, intriguingly reminiscent of heather burning in the distant glens.

This is a full flavoured treat. Plenty to enjoy and you must try it. I don't give it five stars but I think it might deserve them.
I received this as a gift recently. As I surveyed the sleeve I came across "peated" and immediately became curious. When I poured the first bit into the glass I truly expected a very heavy dose of, well, peat. I was VERY pleasantly surprised with the nose, more citrus than anything else. On the tongue is quite light yet very warm and rewarding. I was also surprised by the finish, not as long as I expected but long enough to be very, very pleasing. I think when this wonderful gift is consumed their will be more of its like to follow.
