Non-chill filtered and bottled at a mega 70.4% alc. This single cask whisky really comes alive with the addition of a few drops (or more) of water. Matured in a small French oak Port cask the whisky is dark mahogany in colour. Aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, oak, peat smoke, and some tar are evident. Uncut this whisky has plenty of spice and heat on the palate and is definitely not for the uninitiated, but once again the addition of a little H2O knocks the edge of the heat and allows the drinker to fully appreciate what lies beneath. Distilled from a mash of medium and a portion of heavily peated malt, the peat is nicely balanced by the dark fruit from the Port cask. It finishes long with more fruit, chocolate, and smoke.
