The time interval between blending and bottling… the length of time that the different single malts spend in the cask… is referred to in Italian as the “matrimonio”, that is to say, the “wedding”. It's a metaphor we can run with... our Peaty has been a faithful spouse for some seven years and this is the eleventh edition. As always, its opulence, richness and Belle Époque style charm are astounding. The highly developed, complex tones are in constant flux. Initial notes of sulphur on the nose fade away, yielding to grass and candied orange. Enveloping and satisfying on the palate, it confirms all the sensations that initially stimulated the nose. The finish is persistent with distinctive notes of fresh hay, rhubarb and roots that are in no hurry to leave… like the warm embrace of a reluctant farewell. “Love is physical, marriage is chemical” Alexandre Dumas
