Notes of peat, almonds, pears, and pepper.

A marriage of 100% aged Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, no added colour, not chill filtered. A modern interpretation of the legendary Lossit Distillery.

Nose: It is peaty - woodsy and soft! It is relatively light and again, like the Towiemore, it is quite fresh. That's about all the similarities between the two though. Nice bourbon-like sweetness, the peat mixing well with icing sugar and very soft fruity notes. It is a bit shy on the nose. After a few minutes, I pick up dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. It is not a very complex nose - but there's something appealing here. Maybe it's just the fact that I do like a good Islay whiskey.

Taste: Cool and spicy. Dark chocolate - with chunky bits of chilli and hard roasted coffee beans. Pepper, ginger and a nice fizziness. Nice and full mouth-feel.

Finish: More fruity now and the peat comes through more on the finish than on the initial delivery. Soft chocolate and coffee notes serve as a bed for the lighter fruit notes. The peat and smoke swirl on top as a very flimsy but comforting blanket.

Balance: A fun would-have-been Islay dram. I would love to do a blind tasting with this and the entry-level whiskeys from current Islay distilleries. That could be a fun evening!
