    SMWS Tasting Notes: Founded by Johnston brothers in 1815, the distillery remained in the family until it was passed into the ownership of the first ever woman to run a distillery in Scotland, so they say. A barrel has coloured this dram a mid-gold with orange highlights and the first impression on the nose gives a surprising waft of apple sweetie fruitiness. A woodshed complex of aromas quickly overtakes this: creosote, wood-glue, and some old pots of varnish and paint. The taste is unusual but certainly Islay, with some coal tar soaps, hot pastic and iodine. Add a dash of water and the fruitiness returns, this time bruised apples on an orchard floor with wasps buzzing around. This is mixed with more powerful Islay characteristics: iodine and coal tar soap again, swimming pool footbaths, wood shavings and again more creosote. Not a trade-mark example from this Kildalton big-boy, but will still appeal to those that enjoy the weird and wonderful world of Islay!
