Distillery Tasting Notes
Made by New Riff Distilling LLC ~ New Riff Distilling
Nose: Considerable peat at the front, hinting at fruit and grassy rye. A splash of water detonates into a profound bouquet, as the peat retreats into stylish layers beneath a soaring top note of grassy rye and subtle cinnamon spice.
Taste: Medium-to full-bodied, rounded and chewy, again with quite a bit of peat, but it is lovely peat at that, in fact absolutely gorgeous peat that Islay would be proud of. A midpalate of sugared fruit and cinnamon-allspice heads to a finish of wafting smoke, stylishly dovetailed with the rye spice (Thai long black pepper, mineral, grain of paradise).
