Exuding delicacy, wild wood smoke drifts across bright, tropical pineapple and passionfruit notes. A waxy, honeyed character graces the palate alongside orange blossom and a suggestion of cigar smoke. Exemplary.
Molasses, Wood, Leather, Yuzu
Nose - Leathery dark notes open to a heathery character and sweet malty presence before subtle wood notes arise at the close.
Palate - A rich burst of malt and sweet cereals provide a creamy mouthfeel. Mid-palate, there's a distinct nuttiness followed by a slight astringent citrus finish.
Finish - The lingering finish brings hints of dark molasses offset by subtle citrus peel.

SPEYSIDE & HIGHLANDS
Taisteal's distilleries sit in the picturesque Highlands of Scotland, abundant with pure mountain water which continue to sustain them. The vast natural expanse of the Highlands and idiosyncrasies of their locations, production and distilling techniques account for the seemingly endless flavours to suit a multitude of palates.
Taisteal's distillers source the finest ingredients and harness the natural resources from the Northern Highlands where the River Spey begins its last leg from Highlands to sea, to the Eastern reaches by the River Tay and, to the South West to the South of Loch Lomond. They take their knowledge of the lands and centuries of experience to craft the unique liquids that characterises Taisteal and represent a true journey through the history, heritage of Scotland and the future of Scotch whisky.
