This Ruadh Mhor was distilled in 2010 and bottled in 2021 from a hogshead which produced 306 bottles. This bottling is exclusive to the U.K only.
Jonny of BB&R says: “My tasting notes for whisky are often inspired by flavours evocative of my favourite snacks when I was a child, and this Ruadh Maor brings to mind my all time favourite crisps; Frazzles! For those not from the UK, please seek them out on your next visit; smoky bacon flavoured corn chips and they taste exactly like peated Glenturret!
|Distillery: This robust Highland malt does an uncanny impression of Ledaig; the nose offers fat smoky aromas of bacon, seaweed, some citrus and new leather, it’s remarkably coastal for a landlocked distillate.
WSD: Spicy, smoked sausages, smoky fudge, salted hams, and barbequed banana leaves. Tobacco scented Vape smoke.
|Distillery: The palate continues this theme with powerful peat smoke developing into tobacco, some rich fruit, over ripe blood orange with a distinctly coastal tang.
WSD: Smoked over-ripe bananas, sweet peat and smoked tropical fruits. Quite ashy, burnt wood barbeque smoke and barbequed pineapple.
|Distillery: A long finish brings some oak with a little spice mingling with the fading ashy smoke. A rugged Highlander that would make excellent company on a long hike through the Grampian mountains.|
