Tasting Notes

Color: Light gold. Beautiful subtle color.Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Cairdeas Origin 081 photo copyright Cheri Loughlin

Aroma: Peat smokiness much lighter than Laphroaig, but true to Laphroaig character. Nut flesh without oiliness or nut skin. Honeyed.

Tasted Neat: Very little burn. Gentle sweetness. Feather light. Hint of pepper. Heat grows as it is sipped.

Mouth Feel: Light

Comparable Spirit: If you are a fan of peated scotches, Laiphroaig particularly, this would most likely be something you would enjoy.

Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails: neat, with splash of water or a few rocks.
