Blended in small batches, Duncan Taylor has created a modern Blended Whisky using peaty malts from throughout Scotland, and paying homage to the legendary old, heavy smoky blends of yesteryear.
Smokin’ – The Gentleman’s Dram contains smoky whiskies from distilleries throughout Scotland. The Master Blender has perfectly balanced the robust peat smoke flavours now being produced by mainland Scottish Distillers and complimented them with the smooth notes of toffee and vanilla produced by pairing grain whisky and fresh bourbon casks.
Smokin’ is renowned for its rich flavour and un-compromising character, a full bodied experience to be savored.
Nose : The aroma of peat is rich and strong, interlaced with caramel and vanilla with hints of pepper. There are typical aspects of peat smoke then noticeable, such as caramelised sugars and the whiff of cooked hot peppers marinated in barbecue sauce, buffalo sauce and Worcestershire sauce with smoky bacon – sauce sauce sauce!
Taste : The sweetness from the grain is much more noticeable on the palate. Hints of pepper and dashes of salt occasionally filter through chocolate caramel, vanilla syrup and the sweet element of barbecue sauce/ketchup as the peat, now sweeter, remains a constant.
Finish : Sweetness lingers with dying embers of peat that crackle with a resurgence of those peppers on the nose, and sugars from a recently consumed sachet of ketchup and barbecue sauce. This is a very saucy blend!
