Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Toffee, raw hazelnuts, sea breeze, apricot blossom, and sweet smoke marry well on an intoxicatingly complex nose. The interplay between peat, fruit, and honey on the palate is astounding making for a standout whisky. Coffee beans and nuts on the finish.
