Tasted as a 30cl sample from Dick Macks pub in Dingle. Sampled in front of a fire in an An Túath glass
0.3 (Pale gold)
faint peat, orange oil, marzipan, white pepper
sweet peat, vanilla, small bit of orange from the nose, quite peppery, little bit of burnt wood. Light/thin mouthfeel to it
quite drying on the finish, the peat sticks around for a bit with the marzipan.
A nice enough whisky this, nothing overly impressive but fine for a casual sipper. Was interested to try this as I really like the Laphroaig quarter cask but this would fall short of that. Small bit weak on the peat, even with the fire roaring in front of me, but has a nice sweetness to it that would make it an alright intro to peat for people.
