This is the second single cask release from Peg Whisky. I am trying a sample sent to me by the guys at Peg Whisky.

Abv: 59.1%

Nose: Fresh cereal, grain, vanilla, digestive biscuits, hints of dried dates and nuts, green pears, citrus elements too and also an earthier side heading towards some peat notes.

Palate: I still get that peat vibe alongside some caramel, vanilla, oak spice, green under-ripe fruit (apples and pears) and some fresh thyme.

Finish: Quite spicy, warming, oak, slight smoke, grain, and some thyme still kicking around.

With water: The nose becomes creamier, the palate is rounder, creamier too with some citrus and malty notes heading into the finish (grapefruit).


I have never really taken to grain whisky apart from a 25 year-old Cambus from Chorlton whisky. This one is younger and more spirit-driven but I’ve actually enjoyed it. Would I drink a lot of it, probably not but I guess it might be time for me to explore the grain whisky world a little further!

Slàinte!
