Refill and toasted American oak casks
Bottle series: Made by the sea
Highland (Isle of Skye)
18- 22 PPM
70, 75 cl
Powerful, fresh-clean, and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine, and an explosion of pepper.
Mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes.
Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
