Using richly peated malted barley as the cereal varietal, this whisky has been matured in octave casks, made from staves of a used cask, that is approximate 1/8th the size of a butt. A smaller cask allows for more interaction between the wood and the spirit, giving the whisky a great depth of flavour in a short period of time. bottled at 44%, non-chill-filtered and natural colour.
Colour: bright autumn gold.
Nose: a dollop of rich clotted cream spread over apple crumble, infused with delicious, sweet waves of heather burning on the hillside.
Palate: apricot jam and greengage plums with a contrasting warmth of freshly cracked black pepper. A subtle and delicate smouldering peat ember smokiness flows through the palate.
Finish: the delicate, sweet nature of highland peat marries harmoniously with the distinctive spirit and cask interaction found in octave maturation.
