It clears the heather turf to expose the peat used to produce a lighter peated whisky. This release is set at a 11.1 PPM level
Nose: An initial honey sweetness followed by green apples and the accents of oranges and lemons so typical of anCnoc, perfectly layered with smoky notes.
Taste: Sweet and spicy notes of vanilla and honey are carried forward at the first sip. Hints of toffee then push through outlined by subtle spices and a smooth leathery undertone. The finish is floral and pleasantly smoky.
