I first had this Scotch whisky in March 2021, and usually, I'm more into fine bourbons than Scotch. However, I tried it over ice because my friend didn't have anything else... and wow! I was genuinely amazed at how smooth it was and the subtle smoky flavour. Now, I've got a bottle in my cabinet, and this is the only Scotch I'm really into. I'll definitely be buying a lot more.
Flavours of orange peel, smoke, sea salt, and honey distinguish this full-bodied highland malt. Dried fig, spice, and a smoked malt dryness are apparant on the palate whilst the nose displays aromas of fresh oranges, lemons, and pears, with a hint of salt and peat.
