Allt-á-Bhainne

I fancied something different tonight so was delighted to find this in my whisky room. It has a light golden colour and fine legs so I guessed I was in for something special

The nose is smoky as you’d expect from a whisky that suggests “just enough peat to start a fire”, and there’s also a lovely aroma of fresh croissants. After that I got toffee apples with a bit of spice. It’s a really surprising nose as I expected it to be heavily smokey

The palette has honey and toffee with elements of gingerbread but with an earthy overtone

The finish has a nice warming nip with faint smoke and a hint of cinnamon

This dram is smoky but absolutely not peaty and really memorable

Slàinte mhath 🥃
