Nose : Instant peat smoke hit. Underneath there’s vanilla, toasted coconut, singed lemon peel, melting butter and a clean salty note.
Palate : Very earthy, coal dust and thick peat smoke. Briney and lemony. Some oak and wood spices come through too.
Finish : The smoke lingers and is joined by a warming cinnamon spice and faint leather note.
Overall : Ceòbanach is a pretty big Bunnahabhain, with a strong peat influence and good depth of flavour. Intensely smoky compared to the rest of the standard range. Top marks.
