Returning to a more full-bodied style of whisky from this closed distillery, Pe4 was matured in a refill sherry butt. It carefully balances the distillery’s coastal character with elegant cask influence to produce something that takes the best from both worlds.
Core FlavourSeashells and beach bonfires
Cask detailsSingle refill sherry butt.
NoseCrushed seashells, sweet flowers, singed lime peel and rich earthy notes jump out of the glass, with darker dried fruit and muddy peat slowly developing.
PalateThe spirit is thick and oily and there’s more smoke than the nose suggests – seaside bonfires and burning autumn leaves are joined by spiced rhubarb, vanilla custard and sweet fruit.
FinishSooty and smoky, with lingering spice.
