Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Subtle with pear, mango, vanilla, menthol and a hint of smoke.
Palate: Sweet at first with layers of honey and tropical fruit followed by pepper spice. There is a creamy texture and a subtly smoky backbone.
Finish: Long, dry and creamy with the smoke still gentle.
Comment: Old Islay whisky at its best.

Excellent whisky. full of great flavors all very well integrated, butter. tropical frits, tar... all backed up with wonderful greenish smoke (like a bonfire made of all kinds of herbs. sweet but not too much. I bought a sample and wish I could buy a bottle as a daily dram, but the price is a little high hence the 4/5...
Tried this at the TWE show 2 weeks back. Stopped me in my tracks... and this was after a good 8 pours of various other malts.
