Color: Very light gold

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Soft peat, cinnamon, slight lemon, oak, subtle vanilla, and mountain air.

Taste: Good oily mouthfeel. Vanilla, honey, and butter merge together. Peppered peat smoke and sugary caramel.

Finish: Medium length and warmth with hints of sugar cookie, vanilla and just the faintest moss notes.

Thoughts: Very sweet and sugary for a peated expression. If you enjoy Glendronach’s malt then this is well worth checking out.
