    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 306 bottles from cask no. 5875

    Another in the range of secret Islays. This one is from a refill American oak hogshead giving it a rich gold colour with good beading – a sign of good mouth texture to come. Smoked cheese in an old fashioned dairy (one that has recently been cleaned with carbolic soap). The powerful nose continues with cough sweets and a hint of pastry, even light sponge with icing sugar on top. The smoke comes back, now extinguished bonfires with a touch of tar. To taste, sweet, salty with bags of tarry smoke. We preferred this one at natural strength – water just reduces the richness of this classic Islay. A teeth-coating texture keeps the lingering bonfires alive for a long time.
