Nose: Oilier and a little fatter than the Rutter, with linseed, peanut skins, coffee and soot. Blackcurrant and then caramel emerge along with a touch of salinity.
Palate: Big and mouth coating with peat, barley, white peach and toffee, then fennel and a hint of mint.
Finish: Long. Nice and sooty to start with, nutty too, before medicinal iodine and more smoke emerge.
Overall: This flaughter is round and robust. Something that could also be said of this whisky, peated to level of 14.8 PPM (parts per million).
