    Try This Blended Malt With A High Percentage Islay Single Malts To Enjoy A Smoky Dram

    Poit Dhubh 12 Year old 5cl

    Nose – A bit of an off-note on the nose – still has that vanilla, cacao, smoky peatiness of the 8 year old. Apple, raisin, light nuttiness, a light sherry rancio note, earthiness, some candy notes, lemon, a slight off barnyard note as well. Reasonably complex, but the off-note takes away from the nose.

    Palate – Vanilla, with some smoke, pear, and raisin…lightly off as found on the nose. Slightly bitter. Lightly sweet – just about right to balance out this whisky. There’s also some chilli pepper.

    Finish – Smoky, fruity (apple/pear), creamy, caramel, pear, guava, slight nuttiness, light oak, and some more of that saffron. Lightly dry, with some white pepper playing in as well. The feel of the finish is quite good.
