Two ex-bourbon barrels of peated malt from Bunnahabhain were used for this whisky, distilled in 2004 and aged for over 15 years. This is a straightforward, but not simplistic, dram – full of bucolic peat and citrus fruit. Only 734 bottles produced.
Core FlavourFruity, nutty, with just the right amount of peat

NoseMarmalade on burnt toast, buttered crumpets, grilled banana and pineapple. The smoke is earthy, mellow and inviting like a summer barbeque.
PalateCreamy with burnt orange peel and macadamia nuts. A rollercoaster of robust peat that builds and then descends, accompanied by sumptuous fruit flavours: gooseberry, honeydew melon and a salt-rimmed margarita.
FinishFresher and slightly green; pine, vanilla, concentrated apple juice.
