Description

Peat whisky is so often either thought as from one end of the peaty spectrum from the extreme peaty Islay monsters to the gentle honeyed Speyside drams - some love it, some hate it.

The Lightly Peated 5x3cl Tasting Set has been constructed for those that aren't sure and want to put a toe in the waters to see whether it's for them.

This Lightly Peated Tasting Set contains:
- Highland Park 18 Year Old
- Bowmore 18 Year Old
- Caol Ila Moch
- Oban 14 Year Old
- Springbank 15 Year Old

Contents of the set are subject to change. However, rest assured that whichever dram set you order will include 5 superb drams which will either match or exceed the value of what is listed.

Tasting Notes

Highland Park 18 Year Old:
Colour: Natural colour, burnished gold, clear and bright.
Nose: Rich, mature oak, top note of aromatic smoke.
Palate: Rich, full flavour, honey and peat.
Finish: Soft, round and long.

Bowmore 18 Year Old:
Nose: Creamy caramel toffee, with ripe fruit and smoke aromas.
Palate: Incredibly complex, with beautiful soft fruit and chocolate, all balanced together nicely with a light smokiness.
Finish: The finish is long and wonderfully balanced.

Caol Ila Moch:
Nose: Lemon sherbet and delicious apple crumble and custard combine as dry grass and a hint of smoke is next.
Palate: Sweet lemon meringue pie with a soft mouthfeel. The peat hits a third of the way in but restrained; soothing wood smoke as opposed burning tyres with a delicate sweetness throughout.
Finish: Soft drying smoke.

Oban 14 Year Old:
Nose: Rich, sweet and smoky. There is a nice fruit element with delicious oranges, lemons and pears with sea-salt, notes of cut hay and wood and peaty smokiness.
Palate: Thick and full. Notes of citrus and autumn fruits - dried figs and honey-sweet spices. The oak is quite rich with cereal and malt. A smoky malty dryness finishes the palate.
Finish: A long and a smooth-sweet and fruity finish with oak-wood, dryness and a grain of salt.

Springbank 15 Year Old:
Nose: Demerara sugar, dark chocolate, Christmas cake, almonds, toffee, oak.
Palate: Creamy, raisins, dark chocolate, figs, marzipan, brazil nuts and vanilla.
Finish: Oak and sherry notes sustain and mingle with hints of leather.
