Tasting Notes by Frost
My love affair with peated whisky began with my first introduction to peat. I wasn't on the fence, I was absorbed. Ardbeg - it's all your fault.
I just want to nose this all night. This is crisp and clean.
Nose: Phenolic peat, dark chocolate, lemon, vanilla, malt, salt, limestone
Taste: Brine, lemon, lime, sardines, green pears
Finish: Peat, campfire smoke, tar, the finish is long and fades gently
This 46% is smoother than many a 40%. I really love this whisky and hope that the distiller can maintain the quality.
Batch: L12 047 07:37 6ML
p.s. the title, this whisky fondly reminds me of my childhood at my grandparents house. Immigrants from the UK who had an old gas heater for the cold winters. The smell just takes me back.
