The fourth annual edition of Traigh Bhan. This year’s bottling is matured with a higher proportion of Oloroso Sherry casks, Batch Four is subtly different to the previous releases of Traigh Bhan. Peaty and quite medicinal, but slightly less overpowering than prior expressions of Traigh Bhan, the nose has a sweet honey character to it, dribbling with lighter notes of lemon oil, orange peel, and crushed sesame seeds. Sweet and smoke make a lively but balanced impact on the palate, with a hearty mix of fresh fruit, milk chocolate, vanilla, and tea leaf. The influence of sherry isn’t overwhelming, but there’s enough of it to notice.
