There’s near perfection in the bitter-sweet harmony which is such an enthralling feature of this truly classic whisky, as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit. Region: A legendary expression from the oldest distillery on Skye. Appearance: Chestnut brown. Nose: Extremely sharp and well-focussed; no lingering, rambling smoke but instead a wonderful sultana sweetness. Body: Full bodied, clean yet rich. Palate: Crisp peat softens to enormous richness, with sweet, roasty malt and a heathery dryness. Sherry replaces the usual pepper with luscious, oily sweetness. Finish: Deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Exemplary in balance between sweet and dry.
