    Needs water for better taste. This is the Islay secret. The subdued smokiness, and the clearer presence of sherry influence makes it beautiful complex.
    • Nose
      w/o water - Sherry. Light malt smoke. Canned fruit. Dark honey.
      w/ water - Dry sherry. Dries dark fruit. Parsley.
    • Taste
      w/o water - extreme sweet arrival. Citrus development to liquorice, earthy tart notes, sage.
      w/ water - spicy sweet arrival. In the development: peppercorns, sage, ginger heat. Smoke.
    • Finish
      Citrus, sage, liquorice finish.
