Vatted Malt: Jura, Islay, Arran and Orkney
Gal Granov (88)
Nose: Closest thing you can get to eating an apple pie on a beach in Scotland, without flying over. Lovely malty, fruity apples, gentle peat, malt and seaside. Salt, and and very slight hints of ash. You get bits of every island in that one. really so.
Palate: It’s certainly peatier on the palate than you might guess it to be by the nose, some more ash, and peat in addition to pepper , smoke, and some honey, as well as salt. It gets quite spicy with more pepper when you let it swirl in your mouth, and dry.
Finish: Peat, ash, and lots of pepper, going fairly a long way.
This is a very nice dram indeed, cracking stuff to be honest, and far better than the two previous vatted malts ["Scallywag” and “Timorous Beastie”]. Nice work! it’s really peppery ashy and peaty, far beyond what I was expecting and in a good way, as not to be one dimensional. Lovely stuff. I want that dram in my whixky cabinet.
Good work lads.
