All this distilleries offerings seem to come in squat bottles with very narrow necks which pore very poorly. I hate bad design so this irks me every time, before I even come to taste the whisky.
This malt opens up expressively with soft sweet peaty aromas, some vanilla, apples and some nuttiness too. Medium bodied and the mouth feel is good, delivering sweet malty flavours along with soft peat. The flavours become quite bitter towards the finish, like burnt toast, which is not wholly pleasant but is the only real blemish on the drinking experience.
I do like this malt, but the bottle shape and the finish let it down in my opinion.
