Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Intense. A fluxing mix of barbecue sauce, seaweed, wet sand, hot shells, chocolate, jalapeno, ripe pear/melon, smoked fish. Great balance between the maritime and the fruits.
Palate: Light to medium bodied. Once again great impact: lanolin, cordite, peat smoke, creels, seaweed, seashore. A weird elegance.
Finish: Long, smoked with a sweet finish.
Comment: A cracking whisky from a distillery that's right back on form.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Creosote. Sweet malty notes. Briny. Young leather. Lemon peel. Tangerine juice. Morning dew on moss. A touch of smoked mackerel.
Palate: Sweet and smoky. Oily. Refreshing. Smoke lingers all the way to the finish.
Finish: Slightly sooty, tangy, dry. White pepper.
Comment: Straightforward and uncompromising. Very good balance. The classic Islay outdoor dram for simple enjoyment.
