Nose
Phenolic. Smoky, sooty. Briny. Delicate floral and fruit notes make their way behind the smoke screen. Freesia.
Palate
Caressing, satin-like. Smooth and sweet with a big smoky flavours. Smoke roasted salmon. Then citrus notes. A salty feel on the tongue. Drying on dust and soot.
Finish
Lingering, smoky and sweet. Soothing on candied grapefruit.
Comment
The smoke is omnipresent. A thick curtain which unveils luscious malty notes though. Islay on the nose and on the tongue.

Nose
Earthy, mossy and briney. That smoked kipper quality. Some ripe fruits lurk.
Palate
The smoke coats and fills the mouth. A decent oak roasted salmon oiliness. Leaves a little salt as well.
Finish
Long with plenty of smoke and sweet honey.
Comment
Fantastic Islay experience. Great balance of smoke and sweetness.
