Banana and flint in the nose which is unexpected to say the least.
The taste is still on banana confectionary which is not an expected Islay tasting note, but there is also a little new make spirit which isn't quite assimilated.
And the finish, yes we have more bananas.
A very different whisky from the one I tasted 6 years ago at the airport. It has lost weight, attack and purpose. This is something of an interesting but overpriced novelty in my view. Still the finish is good if you like bananas.
Overall light, one dimensional and overpriced.
Edit: the banana taste fades a day after opening the bottle which leaves even less reason to recommend this whisky.
Edit edit: With a few more days and water it develops a pleasant nutty note so I'm adding 8 points because it isn't too bad but could still be far more epic and better value.
After three weeks in the bottle it becomes quite mellow and nice.... and the banana note returns... +6 points
