So, how is it? In some ways it is a typical blend, with a marriage of peat, honey, fruit, toffee, and grain. It achieves a similar profile of the smokier blends like Islay Mist. Where it differs is in the body: Te Bheag is big, smooth, and robust. It is highly drinkable. It is a sipping blend. Pricewise it falls in between Johnnie Walker Red and Black, and indeed that is where I would place it: far better than Red but a notch down from Black. Like the best blends its flavours are well integrated and it leaves a sweet smokiness in the mouth.
If anyone else has opinions on this blend I'd love to hear them.
