Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose:  Sweet and smokey.  Hints of golden syrup, sugar puffs, shortbread and soot.  becomes faintly medicinal, with bandages and medicine cabinet aromas.  Bonfire smoke, hay and sherbert.  With water, becomes more grassy and flax-like with a hint of sweetpea.

P:  On the full side of medium-bodied.  Intensely flavoured, with coal, barley, honey, hay - like chewing peated barley husks.  Becomes quite hot mid-palate as the alcohol bites, but the generous peat and honeyed edge balance it out.  Water lifts a briney citrus character into focus.

F:  Good length, warming, with straw, smoke and a dash of pepper.

C:  A vibrant, but not unbalanced young-ish full strength Islay.  A great winter dram.
