    A great fuel. The smoke and peat flavors harmonize very well with each other. Sure, his youth can not hide the Staoisha. Likewise, the Staoisha has taken during his short storage in the barrel barely aroma, only on the basis of the color can be a storage in the barrel guess.
    • Nose
      Cold, mineral smoke rises from the glass while on the glass wall a number of small and tough drops quickly run back into the glass. Slowly, voluminous peat mixes with the intense smoke aroma, a hint of sweet fruit mixes with a pinch of citrus fruits. A light vanilla and malt flavor are also present.
    • Taste
      As you might expect, the cold smoke and mineral peat odor from the nose dominate the first sip. Again mineral notes, the smoke is heavier and more oppressive, the alcohol is defy ü 66% harmoniously involved, but lets sense of its unbridled power from time to time.
    • Finish
      With cold and heavy smoke aromas, the aftertaste will briefly forget its peaty aroma. A pinch of salt rests on the tongue, the peat returns slowly and with its incredible smoke-peat mixture the Staoisha slowly fades out.

    Surprisingly good, a PC in my nose and a Laga in the taste. Can you drink really well? not complex but what he has is really good for a quasi new make
    • Nose
      Strong, warm smoke, a little tingling with the alcohol, which is already nicely integrated. The Willias Christ pear is the hammer to the typical Islay sweetness
    • Taste
      Significant smoke behind it is a salty cloud of steam drowning the rest of the rest, the alcohol is really surprisingly well integrated, the barrel has left no traces
    • Finish
      Salty Smoky and quite long and warm.
