Caisteal Chamuis 12 Year Old Producer Notes
Nose: The first note is one of rich beeswax. Boiled sweets too and then fragrant, light peat undertones with hints of coal tar
Palate: Soft and smooth. Peaty, yet not medicinal; a complex fragrant, heathery, lavender-like peat. Fascinatingly complex with florality, then sweet, toffee-d coal tar notes emerging and finally evolving into a finish of concentrated sherry, crystallised fruit, more peat and an oily beeswax.
