    Delicious! You smell and taste the saltiness of the sea. Also a crustacean like smell. Smoke. Peat. Delicious! Highly recommended.

    N: Rubber every time and i like it, along with pineapple cubes. The peat swings between coastal and farmyard which is unusual as its normally one or t’other. Ginger snaps, oil paint, turpentine, ‘Vienetta’ ice-cream, fruits - dried papaya, custard pear, rainier cherries, sour cream, the peat again is, in-between medicinal and mechanical but with heaps of dairy farm. Very nice
    T: Young spirit led followed by peat which becomes creamy. Plastic notes
    F: sweet, peaty, marijuana finish along with salty cockles
    C: Nicely produced but not that overly memorable.

    Scores a B-

    FURTHER INFO: This bottle was leaking on delivery and had been doing so for some time as the label and box were mouldy too. It seems the plastic screw cap wasn’t sufficient. Apparently this has been happening for years - See this entry from 07/01/2011. No response from WE customer services.

    Fantastic Islay experience. Great balance of smoke and sweetness.
    • Nose
      Earthy, mossy and briney. That smoked kipper quality. Some ripe fruits lurk.
    • Taste
      The smoke coats and fills the mouth. A decent oak roasted salmon oiliness. Leaves a little salt as well.
    • Finish
      Long with plenty of smoke and sweet honey.
