Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very flowery, heathery, light seaweedy, emphatically salty.
Palate: Firm and dry at first, with a touch of iron. Slight oiliness, and a suggestion of peat. Becoming maltier and sweeter, with touches of heather.
Finish: Long, with a range of subtle flavours.
Comment: Very slightly spirity, but appetising.
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: The lightest, creamiest of all Islay's noses, but contains a surprising richness. There is also a fruit salad sweetness with diced apples.
Palate: Fresh, intense malt which clings to the roof of the mouth alongside some slightly bitter oaky notes.
Finish: Pleasant, medium length but rather one dimensional. A chalky, vanilla finale.
Comment: This dram has changed in recent years; less silky and more malt sharp but very easy going.
