Bakery Hill Peated Single Malt 46%
Single Cask, Small Batch.
American Oak Bourbon Barrels (ex Jack Daniels)
  • Colour: Rich, golden russet.
  • Nose: A subdued peat aroma combined with a natural leather and overtones of kumquat and fruit mince tart. Sweet, but not overly so.
  • Palate: The palette reveals a tobacco leaf earthiness with layer upon layer of complex smoke intermingling with toffee and honeycomb. Lingers on the lips and palate, demanding just one more sip.
  • Finish: Astonishingly long and complex, an exotic mix of experiences.
  • Size: 500ml
  • ABV: approx 46%

Score 93/100
Nose, heavyweight stuff fruity and phenolic, a few spices march around.
Taste, and those spices come up trumps on delivery, a huge arrival with a big soft juicy backdrop acting as a start contrast. The smoke resurfaces gingerly.
Finish, elegant fade with the fruit having been vanquished by the vanilla, spices and soft smoke.
Balance, I remember when Talisker had this kind of spice attack.
Virtually every phase of this malt works fabulously, a truly wonderful piece of distilling and maturation.
