    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Polished mahogany

    The first impressions are medicinal – iodine, operating theatres, lint bandages – then sweet chestnuts, toffee and damp tweed. Water immediately raises struck matches, brimstone and cordite, but these soon blow off to be replaced by fair-ground smells: candyfloss, sparks from dodgem cars, grubby, hot-dogs with pickles. At natural strength the taste is soft and smooth, then heavy and tarry, like old railway sleepers; with water it remains smooth, now with treacle-toffee, liquorice and dirty smoke. The hot-dogs sizzle over smoking charcoal. Named for a long-closed distillery on Islay; made at another distillery there.
