This dram encompass everything I love about the peat and wine cask combination. Really rich dram with a great balance of fruitiness and peat. Full of red fruits like strawberry, cranberry, berry jam and gummy, coastal character present throughout, followed by a long, ashy, spicy finish. The balance of this dram is great, along with great deal of complexity, can drink this all night long.

Having tried the Longrow 10, this was quite disappointing, rather basic and simple, would vouch for the Bunnahabhain Ceobanach for the same price.
