Colour: Deep rusty gold.
Nose: Scrumptious combination of peat and sherry notes.
Taste: On the palate, it has a soft mouth-feel with the sweet taste from the sherry casks coming through. This gently melts away leaving behind that famous and satisfying peaty note infused with a subtle hint of seaweed.
Finish: The finish is long lasting, warming and slightly fruity, with strong hints of that famous peat.
