Panel's tasting note: "Tropical fruits! Hallelujah exclaimed the Panel. A style that harks back to much older examples of this distillery. Beautiful aromas of tropical fruit syrups, lemon jam, muesli, grilling whelks, sandalwood, lightly smoked barley orange oils and camphor. A little water reveals a more farmyard orientation with notes of lemon rind, earth, beach sand, brine, wool, chalk and flints.
The palate is powerful at first with notes of grist, peat oils, fragrant herbs, smoked meats and orange zest. Before returning to these tropical aspects with notes of pink grapefruit and guava. With reduction it goes towards coconut water, treacle, kiln fresh peat smoke, mango slices and pineapple syrup. Majestic whisky! Matured for 19 years in a bourbon hogshead before transfer to a 1st fill Oloroso hogshead."
