    This single malt offers strong aromas of sweet spices and toasted nuts that join the peat smoke. It is aged in premium Chinquapin virgin oak barrels originating from the Northern Ozark region of Missouri, USA. The mainland St. Fergus peat that was utilised to kiln the grain gives the 35 PPM whisky a sweeter kind of smoke character. The whisky has a rich flavour after a drawn-out 160-hour fermentation process that holds up well to maturation in virgin wood casks.

    Tasting Note by Meikle Toir:
    Nose: Aromas of smouldering oak embers, burnt liquorice and honeycomb, with wild heather, ginger, butterscotch and orange peel.
    Palate: Dark chocolate, creme brulee and toasted almonds, leading to cinnamon, brittle toffee, aniseed and lingering campfire smoke.

    I picked up three of this range (all but the Turbo). Very impressed given only five years in oak (bravo GlenAllachie and Billy Walker for doing age statements on young whiskies, more of this please). All three are good. Serge Valentin gave this one 89 points. I am not quite there but it's good to try something different and the Chinquapin cask does offer something. As always great service from JPHA. Excellent offers, always a good range with a few £ off, and orders well packaged and delivered within 48 hours. Keep up the good work.

    Meikle Tòir Distillery: A Big Pursuit of Peated Excellence

    Meikle Tòir Distillery, nestled within the picturesque Speyside region and housed at The GlenAllachie Distillery, embarks on a profound journey, guided by the esteemed Master Distiller, Billy Walker. The name "Meikle Tòir" translates to 'big pursuit,' reflecting their commitment to crafting a truly exceptional peated single malt. This endeavor began in 2018 when they ventured into producing peated spirit, a rarity in the Speyside region. With their dedication to quality and independence, Meikle Tòir focuses on making decisions driven by excellence rather than quantity, producing only around 100,000 liters of new-make annually for their premium small-batch releases.

    Pioneering Peated Whisky in Speyside with Artistic Flair

    What sets Meikle Tòir Distillery apart is its bold departure from convention. While Speyside is renowned for its unpeated whiskies, Meikle Tòir boldly embraces the smoky and peaty flavor profile, challenging the region's traditional norms. This divergence, coupled with their commitment to small-batch production and artistic attention to detail, results in a whisky experience that is truly peerless. The commissioned illustration by Scottish artist Iain McIntosh, inspired by the rugged beauty of the surrounding Ben Rinnes peak, and the earthy color palette, echoing the natural elements of the distillery's locale, all contribute to Meikle Tòir's unique character and unforgettable whisky.
