AnCnoc Peatheart Reviews
Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: An initial smoky burst surrenders to a surge of fruitiness. Ripe pears and the citrus notes of apples and limes with just a touch of tobacco in the background. The nose is balanced yet an undeniable smoky sweetness prevails.
Taste: Smoke laced with leather and sweet stewed apples. Chocolate is there, too, perfectly complemented by sweet vanilla and zesty lemon.
Finish: Lingering warmth with a floral smokiness.

This one is peaty but the finish is not smooth and smokiness prevails without the lingering fruity notes. I will stick to Lagavulin 16 if I am in a peaty mood.
Very nice... quite peaty and a lovely burn. Not sure if it is worth the money – time will tell!
