Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Zesty and smoky: freshly peeled lemons and coal smoke with orchard fruit and fresh grain.
Limestone and coal fires give way to honeysuckle, sugar-snap peas and liquorice.
Salt, pepper and lingering lemon as the smoke fades.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Lemon zest and coal smoke with warming barley just turned on the malting floor.
Limestone, sugar snaps and coating of dark peat. Honeysuckle weaved with liquorice sweetness.
Fresh flavours of rock salt and black pepper linger as the smoke slowly fades.

I was curious and if I'm honest it was the price that made me add it to an order. I'm glad I did because this is rather nice. Very pale and almost clear, it delivered all the elements of an Islay but without the harshness that some can find challenging. I can see how some Islay lovers could be disappointed, but think of this as an aperitif and not a digestif.... something different.
Looks like white wine/water,but has nice peaty,coastal tastes within.Quite impressive overall.Nice sweetish balance of flavours and same strength as Talisker...so hard not to enjoy!!
Great product, a lovely variation away from the strong kick that some Islay distilleries tend to have. I would highly recommend.
I was really surprised by this 8 yr old, a very nice whiskey, not harsh and reasonably complex and a very attractive price.
harsh and thin, a slight smoke but unwelcoming.
