Strangely lacking in weight in the middle,this either needs to be bolstered a little - or bottled at a\rhigher strength.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Young and immediately smoky: medicinal,bandages ointment and coal tar soap. Sweet underneath. A\rhoney badger with its teeth bared.
Palate: Ash. Big smoky impact with some creaminess. Lighter and creamier than you expect,but collapses when\rwater is added (so don't!)
Finish: Ashes (to ashes)
Comment: Strangely lacking in weight in the middle,this either needs to be bolstered a little - or bottled at a\rhigher strength.
Nose: Intensely marine. Thick peat smoke rising up above Ardbeg (?) on a drich day. Sooty. Then a warmer straw\raroma. Peaches in cream.With water,a TCP touch.
Palate: Smooth, refreshing. Sweet cereals. A tender caress on the palate but in the same time,keeps a dry sooty feel.
Finish: Dry,slightly leafy. A nutty aftertaste.
Comment: A refreshing Ileach. Straightf orward, head in the kiln ! Smoke phobes,keep away from that fellow.
