Judges tasting notes...
“sweet palate with well-balanced pine and spice. Singed pine-needles and orange zest developed (in the glass). Rich toffee background with developing fruit.”
“The smoke hides a bit behind citrus aromas, very fresh, crisp, fruity. On the palate the smoke comes out stronger but is still fresh and very clean. The alcohol structure gives a great complexity and dilution makes the whisky even sweeter.”
Our Heavy Peat is made using peat collected by hand from the Valley of the Giants. The Giants, being the rare and majestic 400-year-old red tingle trees that are native to this area and grow nowhere else in the world.
Heavy Peat is one of Limeburners’ most awarded expressions. After tasting, whisky icon Jim Murray declared that Limeburners “single-handedly put Western Australia up there in the great whisky-making regions of the world.”
