The peaty nature of the Traditional Cask (Ardmore are the only remaining Highland distillery to fully peat their standard malt) might give you a bit of a scare if you aren't but it is followed by a vanilla and fruity presence giving it a quite a rounded flavour. A dash of water dampens the strength of the peat allowing for a breezier tipple. At such a price you can even afford to drop a few ice cubes in. In short, a good place to start if you want to give peat a try. A decent, affordable peaty single malt. About £28 rrp. 46% abv
