My tasting notes are that this is a smooth, full bodied, peaty but not smokey whisky. There’s a slight sweetness, but it’s a well balanced whisky, without harshness or “grab the back of your throat” qualities.
It has just been launched and will retail for R200, which is a steal at that price. Only 8,000 bottles have been produced so my advice is to stock up. The equivalent Scotch or Irish would be more than double.
Produced by Master Distiller, Andy Watts of the James Sedgwick Distillery.
