    Colour:
    Pale gold
    Nose:
    Salty orange, spicy tobacco and subtle peat smoke. In addition lime, grapefruit, as well as wood and eucalyptus flavors. Somewhat wet earth, soaked leather and again these sweet accents of malic acid.
    Taste:
    Harmonious, salty and peppery, but also honey, lime and spicy oak with an emerging peppermint. In addition peat, coal, tobacco and quite dry to the finish.
    Finish:
    Medium long - woody and tenderly bitter. Dry-fresh with peat, peppermint, coal, lead, smoke and tart herbs. All in all now rather watery-thin.

    • Nose
      Light smoke with a hint of ash. Forest honey, a little vanilla, melon, cloves, other spices, which I can not assign directly. Some pepper, peach, orange peel.
    • Taste
      Discreet smoke, dark chocolate, honey, spiciness, light prickling on the tongue, smoked bacon, cinnamon, anise, Christmas spices.
    • Finish
      The bitterness of dark chocolate remains mixed with a hint of smoke.

    Nose: Soft and crumbly iced sugar cookies. Very mild peat and smoke. Mild lime…mild melon. Softly spicy. Is that kiwi fruit? Not sure, but my mind keeps coming back to it. Cinnamon. Faint old dunnage warehouse. Some salty and peppery notes begin to emerge after a few minutes. As do some greens. There’s a savoury note too which I can’t quite put my finger on.

    Palate: So beautifully matured. The peat is just an ethereal memory here, but the smoke is still there to a wee degree. A little bit of anise meets mouth-watering sweet fruits white fruits. Cinnamon cookies. While I love fiery young peat, this is where my heart lies now. Older Islay malts are like distilled angel tears.
