Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: At first glance soft and aloof but revealing a complex array of iodiney-salty smoky notes, sweet malt and drier oak. All very laid-back.
Palate: Sweet malt then a tidal wave of massive peat. Toffee-vanilla oak follows before more peat.
Finish: Long, lip-smacking and spicy. There is a toasty dryness and coffee-chocolate afterglow.
Comment: One of the finest, intense and complex single cask Islay has bottled in the last five years.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fruity seaweed.
Palate: Freshly medicinal. Salty. Rooty, liquorice-like, maltiness.
Finish: Iron. Iodine. Pepper.
Comment: Both the name and the medicinal character suggests the distillery of origin.
