    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Dark Gold.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Initially sweet cured meat aromas with hints cooked pear and salty sea

    air. Delicate sweet Sherry influences develop.

    underlying peat smoke edge develops and lingers.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Delicate Sherry influences complemented with peat smoke. These

    combine with fresh fruit notes, pear and peach.

    Palate: Very sweet with green apple and ripe banana flavours. Bonfire embers

    develop and linger.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long, sweet and smoky.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry Butts.

    Whisky Style: A well balanced Sherried Islay malt.
