    Great complex old Islay, the longer the bottle is open, the better it gets - great!
    • Nose
      Smoked acacia honey, a lot of menthol, meaty, tree resin, maple syrup, mature sweet Pata Negra ham
    • Taste
      Sweet smoke, old smoked ham, glacier sweets, burnt plum compote, marzipan, sweet maple syrup, with 2 drops of water an explosion
    • Finish
      long, smoky, sweet and meaty

    Wonderfully balanced between the fruit and zesty smoke. Elegant, juicy, wonderful.
    • Nose
      Fragrant lime skin, earthy moss, sawdust, wood lacquer, sherbet, vanilla, orange pith, candy brittle.
    • Taste
      Gloriously sweet shopp-y. Salty toffee, liqourice torpedos and sour zingy sherbet with a whole lot of fruit on the side - melon rind, guava, strawberries and tangerines. After the fruit there's drying sweet tobacco leaf and a little Cadbury's Chocolate Buttons.
    • Finish
      Oak and black pepper with wafts of soft wood smoke and black tea. Brazil nuts linger.
