Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Smoky, sooty. Briny. Delicate floral and fruit notes make their way behind the smoke screen. Freesia.
Palate: Caressing, satin-like. Smooth and sweet with a big smoky flavours. Smoke roasted salmon. Then citrus notes. A salty feel on the tongue. Drying on dust and soot.
Finish: Lingering, smoky and sweet. Soothing on candied grapefruit.
Comment: The smoke is omnipresent. A thick curtain which unveils luscious malty notes though. Islay on the nose and on the tongue.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Earthy, mossy and briney. That smoked kipper quality. Some ripe fruits lurk.
Palate: The smoke coats and fills the mouth. A decent oak roasted salmon oiliness. Leaves a little salt as well.
Finish: Long with plenty of smoke and sweet honey.
Comment: Fantastic Islay experience. Great balance of smoke and sweetness.
