Berry Bros & Rudd Peated Cask Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$89. 99 Bottle
Historically, almost all Scotch whiskies possessed a distinctive smoky character, as peat was the most readily available fuel to dry barley. Berry's 'Peated Cask' blend has been matured in a cask that previously contained heavily peated malt, keeping the barrel input relatively subtle. Tasting note: Pale straw gold. A few off-notes aside, the nose shows lovely freshness, the latent fruitiness given a subtle maritime edge, soon overtaken by milk chocolate - all mirrored in the delivery which is genteel, momentarily succulent, the edges blurred by feather-soft brush strokes of smoke. Concludes deeply warming, delicately oily, medium long. Wonderfully pure. 44.2% Alc./Vol.
