Whisky tasting notes
Nose: You get that peat to start, interwoven with orange, lime and malt, and it’s followed by vanilla, oak, bay leaves and green tea.
Palate: Sweet malt, lime and peat gets you first and it’s reinforced by the faintest hint of vanilla stirring bay leaves, green tea in orange juice.
Finish: The malt, lime, peat all carry through into a long finish with green tea and vanilla lingering.
