Cask No. 3.195 Peated

Cigar smoking dragon

sold out

The nose neat is like being on a beach covered in dried seaweed with a damp peat fired BBQ of roast ham, pork bellies and grilled herring alongside boiled cabbage seasoned with butter, salt and pepper. The taste is like a cigar smoking dragon exhaling, a fiercely hot, fiery, sweet and peaty breath; not for the fainthearted! With water more salty; the BBQ has some driftwood thrown into the fire, freshly caught fish and oysters in salty water. The taste is now like reclining in an old comfortable sofa beside a crackling wood fire and enjoying dark centred milk chocolate truffles. This unusual example comes from the oldest distillery on Islay.
