SPEYSIDE Fumare Summer 46% abv
Those of you that know Latin might know what to expect from SPEY Fumare, but those of you that don’t and try this single malt from the Speyside distillery without hearing anything about it might be a little surprised – it’s their first release of peated whisky! Launched in the latter half of 2016, Fumare (Latin for ‘Smoky’) is quite an interesting malt, with 18,000 bottles produced.
Bottled at 46% abv.
Non Chill Filtered
Nose: Oily malt, subtly medicinal smoke, sweet herbs.
Palate: Roasted nuts, caramelised apples, well-toasted barley.
