Words Of Whisky:
A single malt that grows with each sip. I suspect this isn't a crowd pleaser, but it has much to offer and discover.
More Tobermory than Ledaig, this is fresh yet rather dirty, musty and with a tinge of copper coins. And a nice minerality to boot. Also damp leaves and reminiscent of a somewhat yeasty dunnage warehouse. It has an uncharacteristic waxy quality, as well as a tinge of fermented apples, pears, melted butter and a whiff of eucalyptus.
Creamy mouthfeel. A rather chalky and earthy arrival with a nice herbal influence and some mint. As subdued as the peat was on the nose, it certainly is noticeable here—but very subtle still. A hint of cherry pit and some pine needles. There's a fruity veneer of bitter lemon zest, orange rind and even some pink grapefruit.
Soft spices and more vibrant fruits.
