Peat Smoke Single Malt Scotch

I don't particularly care for peated whisky, but this bottle was nothing short of brilliant. The finesse was absolutely mind-boggling - not something I had expected out of a dram made with high levels of peat smoke, at 67 ppm.

Again, I'm not very good with whiskies and it's not often I write notes on it, but this just demanded the attention. Perhaps the best peated whisky I've had.

Tasted neat. Very elegant smoke, if that even makes sense. Neither harsh, nor overpowering. There's a citrusy, spice box, and sea-spray element to the nose too. Palate feels quite rich, kinda like smoking a cigar and eating creme caramel with candied pineapples. The finish is smooth, long, spicy, and smoky. With ice/water, I got more of the oak, but the more delicate citrusy elements started appearing on the palate. The smoke also feels more savoury than cigar-like, kinda like that smokiness in smoked foods. A real joy to sip on.

NB: Distilled 2006, bottled 2016. Another user's tasting note sums this up very well - strong peat, light scotch 🤣
