    Colour: shiny polished gold.

    Nose: At first a bit heavy, freshens up after a few sniffs. Zesty and citrusy, posh honey with a hint of vanilla, perfume and slight maltiness. Sweet smoke is not overpowering and wraps it all up beautifully.

    Palate: Enters with honey sweetness and then instantly explodes with flavour. Loads of smoke here in the middle. Creamy in texture.

    The palate is much bigger than the nose and this is where the price tag starts making a lot more sense.

    Finish: Here the Islay character is unmistakable. It is dry and oaky, really medicinal and bitter, char-grilled.
