Tasting Notes


Butterscotch and a light smouldering breeze of island peat smoke.


Rich, creamy and smoky with hints of leather and prunes warmed with a gentle fire.


Mature for its young age, delivering a warm and lingering heat inviting you back for more.
The Kilnsman’s Dram
Celebrates the dedication, experience and ability to read the requirements of a malting floor and the interaction between the grain and the heat. We released this range to shine a light on this skill set which is dying out in distilleries but is being modernised through modern craft maltsters using mechanised systems.​
