Tasting Note:

'The Rogue Seafury'

Distilled in 2012 from heavily peated refill casks, 59.7% ABV.

Pale golden straw in colour with greenish lights. On the nose it is mild, combining sweetness and maritime notes, a hint of porridge oats rapidly giving way to more cleansing and maritime aromas that suggest briny seaweed, crystal salt and iodine, on a base of mountain smoke. A drop of water softens things, increasing the maritime character. Medium bodied, on the palate it is soft and oily, almost perfumed at first yet salty and lightly sweet throughout, wonderfully peaty and smoky from the specially selected casks, this fiery sea monster has a full on peppery catch to savour. Water rounds it, adding a peppery prickle across the tongue. The finish is long, warming and persistent, finishing smoky, with lingering smoky malt in the aftertaste.
