TASTING NOTES

Nose:

Upfront, an initial smooth and creamy sweetness is followed closely by a strong flash of salty maritime notes. A dry bonfire smokiness lingers with emerging hints of softer citrusy notes.

Palate:

Sharp and salty sea breeze with more hints of sugary sweetness coming through- notes of rich icing, carrot cake, salted caramel and lemon drizzle. Peat fire smokiness in the middle.  

Finish:

A long and warming spiciness to finish with lingering hints of wood smoke.

 

ABOUT THIS BROTHER

Our first ever bottling! This Wee Brother distilled at Caol Ila Distillery has spent 8 years ageing in a refill bourbon hogshead before being bottled at cask strength, all-natural colour and non-chill filtered.
