Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Singed fruit cake and liquorice sticks lead, with sea-side ozone, breaking waves and cold cast-iron stoves to follow. Burning leaves build along with buttered toast, tar, lime, sweet and spicy baked apples.

    • Palate

      Rich and thick, with mint, raisins and cherry slowly enveloped by damp peat smoke, dark chocolate and lime jelly. Leafy notes develop – freshly fallen pine needles and autumnal forest floors. Spiced shortbread, fiery aniseed balls and tarry liquorice linger.

    • Finish

      Mint and lemon jelly, chocolate lime sweets and tingling spice slowly fade.

    What a treat!! Sherry + Peat in a Refill Hogshead = Bliss in a glass. Everyone should have a bottle like this in your bar.

    Dave G,

    This distillery just makes great whisky, this bottle is seriously good, lots of sweetness from the Sherry and that underlying smoke is a pleasure. You won’t be disappointed
