Description

I find it fascinating as well as perplexing that a distillery would release a 10yo of a particular malt and then release a 7yo as well.  Fascinating, because the distillers are quite comfortable with producing such a young whisky and perplexing that the youngster is only at 46%, the 10yo is at 48.4%.

I’ve been very impressed with the 10yo, it’s well textured with good use of smoke while the 7yo is vibrant and lively. So, there is a nice degree of differentiation between the two.  And of course, pricing.

From WhiskyForEveryOne, “On the palate this whisky is fresh and peaty straight away. The damp earthiness and wet, leafy note are evident and are joined by some honey, golden syrup, boiled sweets and vanilla essence. The smokiness becomes more ashy with time and this takes the whisky in a drier direction towards the finish. Further notes of cereal biscuits, white chocolate, icing sugar and lemon zest are also detectable. A pinch of baking spice and clove also come through, as does a late note of gingerbread. The finish is of decent length and it is the peat smoke that punches through everything to draw the finish out. The savoury and peaty notes really come to the fore with a pleasant peppery heat rounding things off”.

Official notes read, “The characteristic sweetness from our new make spirit delicately intermingles with notes of fresh oak and sweet vanilla. Smoke lingers softly, adding depth and sophistication to the long and satisfying finish”.
