Tasting Notes

Nose

Sweet, herbaceous peat. Hazelnut or peanut brittle. Caramelising white sugar. Barbecued stone fruit (apricot, peach) and a little pear juice. Salt-and-vinegar rice cake and a hint of popcorn.

Palate

Medium-full bodied. Initial herbaceous peat and coal smoke fade to barbecued stone fruits, chilled baked pear, milk chocolate, smoked vanilla, salted-caramel ice cream, and wholewheat cracker.

Finish

Long. Smoke leads, becoming medicinal, with hazelnut chocolate bar and liquorice.

Comment

Islay in a glass – layered, sippable, with a good whack of smoke.
