This combination that involves citrus, sap, almonds, and anything coastal and medicinal, is just irresistible. 90 points. Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Lots going on – honey, barley sugar, bananas and melon, backed up by restrained peat smoke.

    • Palate

      More evident smoke complemented by wet peat, honey, lemon and the fruit from the nose.

    • Finish

      Intense to start but fading to long and lingering sootiness with fruity hints.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Matured for more than 30 years in American oak casks, much of the heavy smoke and medicinal notes has been softened and complemented with honeysuckle and autumn fruit.

      Freshly baked banana bread and sticky liquorice sweets create a moreish dram to be savoured late in the evening.

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    • Nose

      Citrus-rich with lemon and lime, joined by classic Islay notes of brine and iodine in the background.

    • Palate

      The salinity comes through, with a hint of tropical fruit (peach and pineapple), with the iodine again subtle.

    • Finish

      Dry with a salty tang and a peaty backbone.

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Sooty fireplaces to start, followed by a blast of fruit: apples, pears and bananas. Damp oak and dowsed log fires mingle with fresh mint, a briny tang, crushed seashells and a chamois leather backbone.

    • Palate

      Soft and oily on the palate, with stewed apple and damp oak to start. Smoke builds, but is elegant and restrained, providing a mineral-heavy counterpoint to polished oak, linseed oil and hints of liquorice. As the stronger flavours fade, a delicate floral core of honeysuckle and violet is revealed.

    • Finish

      Soft smoke, with juicy apples and pears, shifting to honeysuckle and barley sugar, with spicy green leaves and a background whiff of smoke.

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Honey, malt, gristy barley notes at first, then finely poised fruity notes arrive: Williams pear and green apple. Richness comes in the form of banana bread, while delicate peat smoke hovers in the background.

    • Palate

      Whistle-clean apples and pears, then a honeyed character comes through, followed by well-judged peat smoke. Beautifully balanced, with no single element dominating.

    • Finish

      Rich, honeyed fruit lingers, well supported by suitably savoury smoke.
