Palate: A lot of smoke here than i had anticipated based on the subdued nose. continuing with pepper, Sweet malt, Banana peel and ginger powder.
Finish: long. smoky. Savoury and Spicy.
A very enjoyable and smooth islay, could have been a bit nicer at CS as I thought, but very enjoyable too at this level too. At 85 EUR it’s not cheap certainly for the reduced ABV, but also not overpriced. A solid dram.
