Nose:

When you nose this dram you will find some peat influence, but much more than that I’m getting spring vibes with notes of fresh cut grass and home-made lemonade. There’s some apples and honey as well and it all just paints a picture in my mind of biting down on an apple as I walk outside without my coat on, for the first time in spring. A sensation I absolutely love, and it speaks volumes about a whisky that can paint such a picture in my mind. The peat-influence that is there is the vegetal type, with notes of moss and bracken both coming to the fore.

Palate:

On the palate the peat becomes much more noticeable. With notes of charred wood, left in the pit after last night’s campfire. It also brings a savoury note to this whisky, that reminds me most of peppered roast beef. The vegetal peat notes carry through in the palate as well though. I am still finding the lemon note from the nose, but the apple seems to have disappeared. Where I was imagining the first days of spring where you can go out without a coat on with the nose of this dram, on the palate the temperature seems to have risen to a climate fit for tank tops.

Finish:

The finish of this dram has a reasonable – above medium – length. But what I love most about it is the flavours that keep developing throughout. First your hit with a wave of honey and then come some smouldering coals after a BBQ. Once that fades the citrus qualities seems to come back and there’s a whole new layer of freshness that appears as well, with fennel and aniseed popping up near the closing statements of this dram.

Verdict:

I love a good peated dram, and though I usually prefer the bit more untamed spirits from Islay, this dram is perfect for when the outside temperatures start to rise. The balance between its fresher elements and its heavier peated side is wonderful and beautifully composed. I must give it to Chapter 7; with this blended malt they sure wrote a story to tell. Mission accomplished for Selim Evin (Founder of Chapter 7).
