The maturity that shows through comes from the American barrels and the spicy creamy nose from the old style smaller casks. A touch of water allows the full complexity of the Highland peated mat to appear. The rich softness linked with smooth, slightly dry aroma is combined with just enough earthly peat smoke to avoid being overpowering.
