    We love this whisky, it's why we chose it as our first Small Batch Release. A great balanced whisky, that's sure to please Isaly lovers. This tasting was carried out without water.
    • Nose
      Right away you get a lovely charred ember nose with hints of orange blossom honey, swath of peat smoke, hints of iodine, a real dusty - almost dried earth mixed with sweet fleshy fruits, cloves and spices. Lots of spirit/distillery character in this nose, without divulging - most Islay fans should be able to recognise the distillery.
    • Taste
      Peated, lovely attack of fresh spices, some dark chocolate, more sweet fruits - peaches and red apple, mild but not understated oak notes, mixed herbs with a dash of eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      A medium to long finish, ashy, spices again, hints of cracked pepper, orange oil and honey, tangy oak with lightly sprinkled salt.
