At this moment 1/4 through the bottle.
In a brief summation - an elegant light baby peater, with all there is to be desired from a refill Islay youngster.
Turpentine - Bone marrow - Old engine - Carpet store - Mint - Sage...
First and foremost, I'm pleasantly surprised! Was on the lookout for a malt like this: with peaty, medicinal, savory and marine flavors, BUT not a ton of smoke.
It's light, not a heavy hitter. Swims excellently - as you add water couple of drops at a time, it gets increasingly sweet and savory. This dram is supposed to be youngish blend of primarily Caol Ila with a good portion of Laphroaig and just a dash of some other stuff (upon asking via email folks at CB provide even more info than what's on their charts). Beats me why they couldn't just ommit the 1% of some highland malt and just call it what it is - an essential Islay. But let them do their thing, since it works so splendidly.
