Nose: Slightly vegetal, Mezcal, mossy peat, latte and cranberry juice. Specifically that smell that gets into your clothes after you've been standing near a fire.
Palate: Orange syrup, dates and figs, more peat and embers.
Finish: Burnt sugar, coffee cake, cinnamon stick and prune juice.
Overall: We're all for new things - New World peat? Why on earth not?! A North American whisky using North American peat. Unsurprisingly it differs from its Islay cousins, just as the petrology of these far removed parts of the world differ.
