You gotta hand it to An Fear Grinn – they do release some delicious whiskey.
It helps – of course – that they’re all presented non chill filtered & natural colour at usually 46% – or above.
This – to me at least – accentuates the strength of flavour within.
Their latest release – Móinteach No 2 – is a follow on from the original peated single malt Móinteach of last year.
There’s a classic iodiney, TCP kind of nose going on with No 2. Not overpowering – just very clearly stated.
Clean & crisp on the palate. Lovely freshness. Again the peat influence is evident.
Finishes with a lip-smacking dryness coating the mouth in a prickly tingliness which excites & leaves with a soft smokiness.
An elegantly presented smoker of a malt.
Catch it while you can!
