Relicario Peated Finish has been developed from Relicario Superior, aged for between 5 and 10 years in the Dominican Republic and then aged for a further 6 months in American oak barrels that contained whisky peated (barrels of 250L).
The ageing takes place in the renowned area of Speyside (Scotland).

Swallowing sensation: Deep-bodied with an aromatic complexity that fills the palate with perfect harmony between the aged notes and the smoky nuances.

What is Peat?

Peat is thousands of years ‘worth of decaying vegetation. When peat is harvested, it’s cut up into small sloopy slices of sod, stacked in pyramids and left to dry. The substance is in the smoke. Barley grain is exposed to the smoke of a peat fire in order to arrest germination; a crucial part of Whisky production. Once dried, the malt is mashed and the peatiness will be measured by PPM or phenol parts per million.

What does peat taste like?

Peat varies by region, and can add tasting notes including anything from soapy, rich, smoky, herbal, creamy, saline, citrus, nuts, etc. Depending on the amount of time the malt is peated for.
