“Old Ballantruan” Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky is only one of a handful of peated malt whiskies from the Speyside region.
After ‘sleeping’ for 10 years in hand-picked oak barrels, this whisky has been bottled at 50% volume and without any chill-filtration to retain its layered and integrated peaty flavours.
Nose: Gentle waft of “peat reek”, smoked campfires and subtle citrus fruit notes
Taste: A mellow, dry peat with hints of lemon cheesecake, cocoa and shortbread
Finish: Lingering smoke and peat with a light pepper kick
