The Peat Chimney 12

Country: Scotland
Type: Blended Malt
Bottler: Wemyss Malts
ABV: 40%
Score: 87 points

You might expect a whisky named “Peat Chimney” to be a peat monster, but this one starts off with a mild peatiness and smoke on the nose, along with hints of tobacco and leather, brown sugar, and allspice. The taste starts off syrupy and sweet at first, with a wave of peat that rolls in over honey and ginger notes that add a nice balance. The finish is consistent with the taste and fades slowly. (January, 2013)
