Introducing Batch 1 of our first Peated Cask Strength expression, bottled at 56% ABV.
Many years ago, we defied convention and started to peat a proportion of our spirit, returning to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Our unconventional approach to whisky making is our hallmark and our reputation for making superb Speyside single malt whisky is unsurpassed.
Matured in a combination of Oloroso Sherry casks and Bourbon barrels, Batch 1 is non chill filtered, natural colour and bottled at 56%, so it can be experienced as if sampled from the source – straight from the cask.
Nose: Butterscotch drizzled over campfire-roasted apples combined perfectly with crisp white pepper. A gentle, earthy oak character adds to the subtly peated back note.
Colour: Bright summer gold.
Taste: A warm, toasted oak sweetness combines with toffee apples and ripe nectarines. A sweet heather smoke slowly builds leaving a lingering peat note alongside Scottish tablet and rich stewed barley.
