Our First peated expression fully matured in a French Oak Pinot Noir Cask. But this is a tale of woe... This cask was a 20L cask, but unfortunately it leaked and we only have 20 bottles in total & only 10 on the Website. This is a special cask for us as it was our first batch of peated barley from New Zealand. Each bottle comes in a beautiful gift box, with two engraved glasses and a booklet covering our first few years inside an amazing dust jacket.
Firstly the colour, WOW, this is the darkest Whisky Adams has ever produced, almost black. The Peat is very soft and light, early on the pallet and gives way quickly to the sweet cherry and dark fruits in the middle. The typical dry finish of the Pinot arrives on a wave of fresh grape and some dried fruit notes. This spirit has legs for days on the glass which helps the super long finish accent the three distinct stages to enjoy. 53% ABV
