Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peaty, smoky, very appetising.
Palate: Light but textured. Flavours very singular, and not yet melded. A fresh, young whisky, but no obvious spiritiness.
Finish: Sweet, then salty.
Comment: A light, young version, at a competitive price.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Young, sweet, slightly under-ripe and malty. The peat is surprisingly subdued.
Palate: Enormously sweet to begin, with an almost gristy, mealy presence. Dries out towards the middle but the peat appears light and clean.
Finish: Surprisingly long with the peat at last gathering forces. Very little complexity or direction.
Comment: An almost teasing Islay, with peat but never really taking off. Never more than pleasant.
