Nose
Powerful seashore aromas.
Palate
Firm, dry, salty. Olivey bitterness. Black olives.
Finish
Intensely pepper, salty. Slight iodine.
Comment
Youthfully powerful. Almost raw flavours, without being in any way spirity. Many Islay-lovers enjoy their whiskies young. This is a robust example.

Jim Murray

Nose
Fresh and slightly green, subtle and very sweet pea. Quite oily and gristy.
Palate
Immediately sweet with a consuming and fabulously oily peatiness. Little complexity beyond peppery smoke and the youth of the malt.
Finish
Remains young and wonderfully intense with the peat clinging on as some drier oaky tones emerge.
Comment
Peatiness is unyielding and unsubtle but enormously enjoyable.
