Produced with smaller barrels. . . maturation is thus faster, resulting in an "older" tasing whisky at a cheaper price!
"The first nosings find clean, apple peel-like and peat-free scents; later inhalations find a more sea breeze like, mildly briny character. Palate entry is lean, earthy, moderately smoky and lemony; midpalate is oily with flavors of ash, peat, sweet malt and brine. Concludes sweet, peaty and cigarette ash-like, with a bite of green olive." Wine Enthusiast 90-95 Points
