Review:
My first ‘mystery’ single malt, which means the distillery is unknown (it’s been packaged by someone else). As the name suggest it’s heavily peated on the nose with all sorts of oily salts with a hint of fruits. The same journey continues on the palate as the dominant oaky leather and tobacco mix with fruits to present an unusual (but pleasant) offering. The finish is long smoky and dry with tangy overtones.
