Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • TASTING NOTES BY STUART P

    • Nose

      Fresh and fruity at first, with notes of lemon and orange oil, joined by roasted almonds and dark chocolate and enveloped by layers of warming peat smoke. Water brings out more refreshing citrus notes.

    • Palate

      Richly textured, with pear and melon and a sprinkling of black pepper and honeyed fruit. Again, the soft smoke arrives, with bonfire embers imparting a lovely warmth and character.

    • Finish

      Clean and fruity, with the soft wood smoke lingering.

    • Comment

      There’s a lot to like about this whisky. It doesn’t try too hard, and instead shows the things that Islay fans love: peat, smoke and fruit. I’m not sure that water improves this whisky, either; I think it’s pretty well balanced as it as, despite the high ABV.

  • PRODUCER'S TASTING NOTES

    • Nose

      Fresh, sprightly barley entwined with peat smoke and bonfire embers. Bracing aromas of salty seaweed and seashells. Plenty of clean fruit – lemon, lime and grapefruit, while hiding underneath are notes of rich earth and liquorice.

    • Palate

      Warm and leathery with thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple and lime with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of smoke and dark-chocolate limes envelope the palate and are intertwined with softer lemon oil and BBQ sauce, with hints of roasted spices and barrel char, complementing the peat and smoke.

    • Finish

      Sea spray and baked apple fade leaving heavier smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.

    Very good but the ileach CS is better

    Very good north/south Islay mix . Very young and not as good as the ileach cask strength in my view with Similar pricing but the ileach is a little older and single malt
