Inspired by an alchemy of craft and cask, time, sea, and air. This is a batch strength edition of Scarabus’ single malt whisky. Offering all the same peat, sea air freshness and vanilla sweetness of the standard release but with these notes enhanced a little. Just like the original, this is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring. It is presented at 57% abv, slightly higher than the original Scarabus, the mystery single malt.
The tasting notes for these are a little different to the original. Notes of beach bonfire smoke waft up on the nose alongside characteristically Islay peat smoke, and these notes combine and complement hints of liquorice, toffee, and vanilla on the palate. The finish is long lasting, with ashy, smoky notes coming to the forefront. One to savour.
