  • Synopsis:

    Bright fruit, enticing desserts and seaside peat and minerality come together with gusto to present a peated dram that won't destroy your palate - perfect for a fall afternoon or a drink after sunset.

  • Intro:

    Spey Fumare is an interesting limited release, comprised of only 3,000 bottles. Distilled from peated barley and bottled without any coloring, this light, smoky bottle has some weight to it. Literal weight. I'm looking forward to giving this a go, as this isn't currently available here and the weather is turning crisp. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Plum, lemon, honey. Quite pleasant on the nose, even when the peat storms in. Lightly vegetal peat, some nice oceanic notes to it - brine, salt, a hint of minerality blending nicely with the initial sweetness. Lemon bar, fresh rising bread, light toffee notes are present as well.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel on the palate, immediately the peat is present but well integrated. Bonfire, a hint of ash, some stone and gravel with lemon curd, honey and a bright creme brulee character. Heat is in check, and it coats the palate nicely after some time.

  • Finish:

    Long finish - lots more dessert and peat here. Fresh vanilla bean, savory mineral peat, honey and pralines.

  • Overall:

    The balance of peat, spirit and barrel character come together really nicely for when you want to enjoy something peated, devoid of risk of toasting your palate for the next 48 hours.
