Geur

Intense earthy peat and sweet raisins, with bittersweet espresso, cigar boxes, sea spray and gentle smoke. Water reveals more smoke and fruit – sour apple and sweet pear.

Smaak

Rich and herbal to start, softening to reveal tarry peat and sherbet lemons. Smoky notes build, with savoury notes of roast meat combining with sweeter wood smoke. Water adds sweetness and softens the smoke into a rich background note.

Afdronk

Wet wool fades to leave lingering smoke and peat that slowly sweetens and becomes orangey.

Notitie

The final entry in the Pe range…so far. We decided to go out with a bang and this is the best in the series to date. Matured in a refill sherry cask, it dials down the wine influence even more than in Pe4 to create an elegant but full-bodied whisky that shows the best this distillery has to offer.
