Poit Dhubh 12
A 12 Year Old blended malt, this was matured in sherry casks, which has brought a lovely sweetness to counteract the peat. Poit Dhubh is Gaelic for "Black Pot", or Illicit Still...
Quality Blended Malt
Arrival is all Oloroso sherry with lovely toffee and dried fruits. The long finish is a blast of smokey peat. However, this is no Lagavulin 16 as the elements are not so well integrated, nor does it have Laga's complexity or age. However it is about £20 a bottle cheaper. Blended in the Isle of Skye may well include some Talisker. Bottled unchillfiltered at 43% it is a great find and very good value.
