I sample my malts both with and without a drop or two of water. I like this one with water. Both ways, I get berrylike sweetness all day. Neat, I get more sea salt on the finish; yet with water, it is smooth from arrival to departure. Water opens the layers of flavor and this deep, rich, round flavor should be unpacked. I don't get overpowering smoke with this one, but it's there.
Always a reliable rich and flavorful drink. One of my favourites.
I tried a few others from Islay. This one is, so far, the best that I've had. I've been a big fan of the Speyside Scotch's....This one is my new fav.
