First peated whisky from this revived distillery
Silver Medal for Scotch Single Malt – Highland - IWSC 2017
“The Torfa” refers to the Old Norse word for tuf or peat.
Nose: Vivid, sweet, sooty campfire smoke and sea air infuses zest of lime, apricot jam and ripe soft fruits; all gently warmed by hints of stem ginger and cracked black pepper.
Palate: An eloquent, sweet coastal peat smoke engulfs candied peel over melon, pineapple and roasted red apples. Oat biscuits, hints of heather honey and a gentle cigar box spice all combine to give a terrific balance to the expressive smoky character.
Finish: A heady, yet elegant harmony of distinct coastal peat and striking spiced fruit flavours.
"This is on the the sweeter end of the peat spectrum, though somewhat light in weight. There's a pleasant smoked meat flavor (like beef jerky), with pipe tobacco, charcoal, bitter chocolate, salt and seaweed. It's a fun sip, and if you close your eyes, you're standing at the edge of the sea as a yummy BBQ dinner cooks in the near distance. Really gets the palate working! Finishes just a tad hot."
