Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent and medicinal with sweet barley and acacia honey. Fresh pine needles, white fruit, subtle salt and dusty peat smoke emerges with time.

Palate

Sweet barley, white fruit and creamy/milky oak. Sweet peat, loam and coffee notes. Darkens as the malt arrives and dries as the rock salt notes kick in.

Finish

Long and salty with lingering iodine enhanced, crisp white fruit along with that pine needle freshness. \n

Comment

A lovely Islay. Not overblown peat wise, just very well balanced and seriously salty!
