A classic from the western Highlands this fruity malt offers a whiff of heather and more than a hint of smoke. The nose speaks of the sea with mineral, brine, and smoke playing alongside of mild maltiness; the palate is rich with dried fig, orange, sweet malty flavour and smoke followed by a long finish with a hint of salt.
Nose: spicy. Hot sawdust, fresh ginger, citrus zest. Crisp with water fragrant oak, allspice, shortbread with sugar. Palate: dried apricot, tingling. Slightly sweet with good balance in the mid-palate and a hint of menthol. Finish: tingling ginger. Short but fresh.
Mouth-filling late autumn fruits; dried figs and honey-sweet spices; followed by a smoky malty dryness. Simply lovely with chicken satay or even crystallized ginger.
Hint of sea air, mineral, subtle peat and mild maltiness; delicate, perfumed and slightly smoky on the finish
