Nose
Once the alcohol flashes off the smoke rushes out along with citrus, freshly cut green grass, oyster shells and a youthful bleachy note.
Palate
Good mix of intense leafy smoke and an oily succulent feel. Melon. Fresh fish. Generous and silky.
Finish
Smoky. Lobster creels.
Comment
Just one of a great clutch of smoky drams this time around.

Arthur Motley

Nose
White/lemon pepper, some cereally sweet oat notes of youth.
Palate
Lemon puff biscuits, vanilla and a leafiness. A chalky smokiness, and maybe like barbecued fish at times.
Finish
A lingering, tingling pepperiness.
Comment
Lively, lip-smacking Islay. More good stuff from Sukhinder and his Whisky Exchange gang.
