Bottled 2010. A much sought after malt produced for a short period 1969-1983. A strong, smooth Highland malt with peat, phenols and a gentle sweetness. Matured in re-fill sherry butts.
Nose: initially fresh with hints of dried fruits - apricots and peaches. A lemon freshness becomes evident and a hint of cinnamon develops. Palate: Some delicate peat, intertwined with sherry sweetness. Mouth watering with a delicate butterscotch edge.
