This dark scotch ale is part of an exciting range from Fyne Ales, who are showing their Scottish Farmhouse roots with barrel ageing and inventive brewing processes. This has been aged in kilkerran whisky barrels and it works sublimely. A gentle peatiness on the nose with some caramel malt and a little earthiness. On the taste, that warming whisky is immediately present, but by no means aggressive. A touch of vanilla and more of that smooth sweet malt. This is mellow, sophisticated and comforting. The perfect warmer for a chilly evening.
