Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Intense. Drier, flowery, seaweedy, salty.
Palate: Flowery, seaweedy, salty. Flavours very well-combined and rounded. An easily drinkable yet satisfying malt. Has definitely benefited from the extra five years.
Finish: Long, warming, salty.
Comment: An easily drinkable yet satisfying malt. Has definitely benefited from the extra five years.
8.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Peat-free (contrary to label) and clean - even cleaner than 10 Years Old. The malt is sweeter, too, with more vanilla, and a hint of butterscotch.
Palate: More discreet malt this time, with a pleasing built up of spices and oak.
Finish: Dry and extremely malty. The oak adds a bitter chocolate finale.
Comment: Wondrously peat-free for an Islay but lacking in depth. Even so, this is rather lovely stuff.
