Glendronach Peated

Glendronach PeatedGlendronach slipper snart sin første peatede tapning. Den er tappet på 46 %, har først lagt på ex-bourbonfat med videre lagring på ex-Oloroso og ex-Pedro Ximenez sherryfat. Prisen er forløpig ikke klar, men her er iallefall smaksnotatet fra destilleriet:

Appearance: Vivid harvest gold.

Nose: A delightful aroma of ripe gooseberreis dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.

Palate:Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugars, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.

Conclusions: A unique marriage of crisp fruit and barley-laden Highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke, intriguingly reminiscent of heather burning in the distant glens.
