Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sooty. Treacle toffee.
Palate: Peaty, earthy, cedary. Charcoal.
Finish: Robust. Sharp. Hot.
Comment: Some of the classic Islay elements are there, but discordant. Not well rounded.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet, poached pear with a nutty malt at back. Coconut and vanilla. In time sage perfume which with water becomes more oily and lavender like.
Palate: Very perfumed. Has become essence like. The overt lavender is calmed with water, making it sweet and lightly smoky once more.
Finish: Smoke.
Comment: A good spirit dented by that essential oil quality.
