This is a blend of 80% unpeated barley and 20% peated barley malts — just enough to give it a nice smoky nose without being overpowering. The nose is dry with notes of fresh bread baking and a touch of almonds. The taste is sweet and syrupy with an amazingly chewy mouthfeel that develops an intense spiciness that lasts and lasts, but is still complex enough to show notes of hazelnut underneath. The finish is slightly smoky with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
