Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Thick-cut grilled smoky bacon to start, with a rich and briney background: salt-cured meat in the aftermath of a freshly crashed wave. Sweeter notes develop, with barley sugar and pink shrimps crawling out of the surf.


    Palate: A background of sweet peat smoke plays host to mint chocolate chips, liquorice and baked apples. A hint of white pepper lurks and the back of the tongue but is washed away by waves crashing on a stony beach.


    Finish: Tar and coal smoke collide with spearmint, and slowly fade to tingling spice and black liquorice.


    Comment: A seaside bruiser, with smoky intensity and richer, more fruity body than you'd expect.

    Ah, so, this was a really pleasant surprise. Quite a solid resemblance to the classic Caol Ila taste, but darker, stronger, and, to me anyway, more complex dram for dram. Tastes best at about 50% which is presumably why it's been bottled at 57%.
