Fumare (Latin from smoky) was the first ever peated distillery bottling from Speyside Distillers, produced from peated barley which the distillery only used for a small amount of time each year. 100% matured in bourbon barrels, & bottled at 57.5% non chill-filtered and with no added colouring. A limited release of 1500 individually numbered bottles. Light gold appearance, with a subtle nose. The delicate character of the spirit is evident, though it’s very clear that this is a peated whisky. The smoke slowly builds in intensity, but with minimal medicinal notes, and increased sweetness. The addition of a few drops of water increase the complexity, and enhance the sweetness & vanilla notes that combine so well with the long, smoky finish.
