Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Light, fragrant, peat, smoke and salt.
Palate: Light, dry, leafy, with vanilla-pod and creamy, syrupy, malt emerging.
Finish: Late gust of salty warmth.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Light, delicately peated, freshly ground malt with a young, ammonia note. Beautiful and very clean honey more than compensates.
Palate: Big alcohol kick, very mouthwatering and delightfully peated.
Finish: Some oaky notes which soften the peaty spice and malty sweetness.
Comment: A light-coloured young malt which thanks to the peat notes suggests Highland Park or maybe Ledaig. The sweetness tends to point the Orkneys. Unusual, very tasty and great fun. Don't know about the 'Brimstone and Treacle', though.
