Islay Barley 2004
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Malty, fresh. Green malt. Lemon juice. Quite herbal. Lemon balm. Angelica. Fresh coriander. Pleasantly aromatic. With water, a touch of tablets.
Palate: Crisp, crunchy. Fizzy on the tongue. Very fresh and clean. Obviously young.
Finish: Short, sherbet. A note of almond milk in the back.
Comment: Young, a bit fiery but very refreshing. A summertime dram.
Nose: Pale, fragile and lacy. A very discreet nose with whiffs of the mill room and then daffodils. Cool light and very subtle but with real sweetness behind.
Palate: Very pure and with more intensity than the nose suggests. Creamy texture. Gentle pear like fruits and again water helps to spread the flavours over the palate. Lovely texture.
Comment: Discreet, subtle and pure with great balance for one so young - and marked accordingly.
