Nose: Pepper and cranberry open the nose followed by milk chocolate and the fresh aroma of a conifer forest.
Palate: Peppery and malty with a coastal character and an oily mouth-feel. Slowly but surely notes of mulled wine fill the mouth and announce the finish.
Finish: Big spicy notes of course ground pepper, cumin and nutmeg with sweet popping candy on the tail.
Overall: A rich single malt from the Isle of Mull with warm spicy notes and a great mouth-coating quality.
