TASTING NOTE: Named for the river that cuts across the property, this is a medium-peated dram. Antique gold in the glass; the nose is intriguing with wet stone, light peat smoke, mint, and dried floral. The palate continues with mineral, zesty citrus, and dark chocolate on a medium weight palate that finishes with a flash of hot pepper. Price $ 109.95
