Toiteach means “smoky” in Gaelic, and that should give you a clue about this dram. The nose has a good mix of wood smoke and dried leaves, with nutmeg, almonds, and a hint of brown sugar. The taste has notes of peat and creosote that are balanced well with brown sugar and straw to create a slightly dry and astringent mouthfeel. The finish is extremely long and warms the chest with soft spices and a hint of peat smoke.
