Smoke bomb alert! Imbibers who love a peaty profile will enjoy this smoky-but-smooth single malt. Pair with assertive flavors, like sausages or charcuterie.

Old gold color. Aromas of charred nuts, toffee, and fruit pastry with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a honey cream, roasted grain, white cigar ash, pepper, and grass driven finish. A lovely, lightly smoky, sipping Irish whiskey with lots of subtlety. The smokiness has been greatly dialed back from previous bottlings.
