    SMWS notes: 

    "This distillery has the largest capacity of any in Scotland, and is owned by the Japanese. This bourbon cask was filled with experimental peated new make spirit. A mid gold colour, the first impression on the nose is of sweet pink germolene, with cereal undertones (flapjacks). Very interesting! With a little time, solvents also develop alongside grassy nettle soup aromas. The taste at cask strength is sensational: full, sweet and peaty. With water, it holds together well, although the peatiness decreases a touch to allow grassy notes to the fore. With this comes some delicate fruits: artificial watermelon flavouring and a bit of lemon. On the palate, the diluted taste is more astringent, and has an enduring, smoky aftertaste. A chewy, phenolic dram that is simply fascinating. A must try for Islay fans, and a perfect dram to fox your friends in a blind tasting."
