Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: Stewed fruits and barbecue coal with sea spray and coastal rocks. Sweet smoke dissipates as core flavours of fresh citrus and salted caramel come to the fore, combining classic Islay flavours with refreshing fruity notes.
Palate: Burnt honeycomb and baked raisins infused with five-spice and peat smoke. Candied fruits and sherbet lemon build as an underlying earthy peat brings together a superbly rich and juicy mouthfeel, with crème brûlée notes and a delicious peat-infused caramel layer.
Finish: Long and heavy with maple-cured bacon and liqueur-soaked sultanas. A beautifully fresh and peaty finish.

Right out of the bottle this whisky is incredibly refined. The nose is similar to Ardbeg but the palate is a whole different world. Peat smoke perfectly balanced with sweet vanilla and lemon meringue without any sharpness. The finish is long and mouth-watering. I cannot wait to see how this bottle opens up over time.
