Nose
Aromatic. Dry. Medicinal. Juniper.
Palate
Interplay of creamy sweetness, graininess and saltiness. Reminiscent of Japanese seaweed crackers.
Finish
Sea flavours building up for a storm in the sound.
Comment
Light in the middle, and delicate throughout, but lovely Islay flavours.

80
Nose
Light, cheerful. Vanilla pod. Fresh garden herbs. Hint of butterscotch, orange blossom. Smoke.
Palate
Palatable sweetness. Barley juice. Appetising cereal notes tinged with mint. Water releases exotic fruity notes (juicy pineapple) and peat reek.
Finish
Short but pleasant.
Comment
Young, easygoing, vibrant. Absolutely unfiltered judging by charcoal particles in the sample.
