    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 250 bottles from cask no. 1463
    Golden maize in the bottle, and full gold in the glass. Thick legs indicating good body. A rich and enchanting nose which combines lubricating oil and Swarfega hand wash, mineral rub and bath salts, with a hint of up-market sauna bath. Gorgeous oily texture at natural strength; a sweet then mineralic taste. Turns very cloudy with water (a good sign for me!). The nose is still oily, rounded and mineralic; the texture full-bodied; the taste lightly sweet, lightly salty. A truly elegant example of an elderly Islay: rich-textured and lacking in overly-obvious smoke.
