The traditional use of refill casks is our choice for the single malts that we want to keep true to the nature of the spirit, without adding too much sweetness from the wood or taming the intensity of the peat smoke. In spite of the strength, it’s a whisky that remains lean, light bodied and almost ethereal: as clean an expression from this distillery as you can get. At the nose it’s bright, maritime, full of breezy sea air… and of course an intense presence of very ashy, crisp peat smoke. The same maritime and smoky style is found at the palate, with a deceiving simpleness: a dry clean style, just the beauty of peat smoke, salt, iodine, a slightly citrusy touch. Enjoy it straight, or with a splash of cool water to appreciate its delicate nuances.
