Tasting Notes

Nose

Moderate intensity showing beautifully integrated phenols: lightly perfumed (herbs), farmland, then sea spray, bitumen and finally smoked ham, kippers. Vibrant and complex.

Palate

Great mix of sweetness and phenolic depth: rosemary oil, bayleaf. An oily quality which allows the flavours to extend across the palate.

Finish

Cooked meats, sweet smoke.

Comment

Faultless balance. Has an extra dimension which just edges it past the Bowmore.
