Another giant but a hidden gem, because until recently the malt from this East Highlander went mainly in to Teacher's. That's changing, though. Bought by Beam Global a few years ago this malt, matured partially in quarter sized casks, has won a great deal of acclaim since it was launched as a single malt in its own right.
Nose: Not the easiest to take to initially, with savoury, rootsy notes, some bamboo, and a gentle hint of seaweed and brine.
Palate: A savoury taste and a grower if ever there was one - olive and artichoke compete with grumpy peat and finally some sweetness appears, like the belated arrival of the sun after a particularly intense storm.
Finish: Delightfully peaty, briney and long
this is in our festive tasting.
