For those with a sweeter palate.

Islands (Non Islay)
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: In a similar vein to the previous one, but more dark fruits and phenol. Seville orange, charred wood, lime blossom. Subtle.
Palate: Heavy and slightly lacking in momentum. Blueberry and stewed rhubarb. Soft but with sufficient grip and indeed smoke to balance. Clean and good length.
Finish: Rounded and soft. Then smoke.
Comment: For those with a sweeter palate.
Nose: A whiff of smoke laced with light honey. Marshmallows. A freshly filled coal bucket and eucalyptus trees in the sun.
Palate: Popcorn, buttery but there is also fruit, apples almost blueberries.
Finish: Dries on spices, and a little bitter oak.
Comment: Reminds me of somewhere exotic and sweet. The smell as you walk out of\rSydney airport.
