I just cracked opena fresh bottle and this was my first tasting of it. I was very surprised in that the nose had a typical Islay character (but less so than would be expected) and the palate presented almost nothing to me that would be typical of Islay malts. I found almost no tar, smoke or peat. Has anyone else come to a similar conclusion on this? i felt that there was almost no harmony between the nose and palate (not that this is necessarily bad, just interesting to me).
