Single malt - Campbeltown
Nose: Orange peel, black tea, peaches, pears, white grapes, hints of leather.
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, airy, slightly watery around the edges.
Tasting: Bitter sweet. Black tea, peaches, leather, peanuts, sandalwood, hints of violets.
Finish: Short. Peanuts, peaches, lemon zest, white grapes.
Old fashioned whisky, the bartender said, and old fashioned whisky it is. Quite sweet, slightly smoky, bitter notes, even savoury. Good fruit cut with peat and a slight hint of fragrant smoke. I guess the only way this could be more old fashioned is if it were matured in herring barrels, like Campbeltown whisky used to be...
I like this.
