    Good whisky, good value.
    • Nose
      Smoke and seasalt, 
    • Taste
      Soft tones of islay smoke, peat, tar, no salt on the palate, dry, smooth body.
    • Finish
      First you think the finish will be short because of the intense smoke disapears but light smokiness stays for a long time.

      peat and tar.
      Very pleasant.
