Nose
A Chinese takeaway – sweet 'n' sour, hoisin duck, spring onion, prawn crackers, starchy white rice. Charred oranges, oak shavings, salt and some red chilli. Prickly alcohol.
Palate
A chewy, plasticky palate that boasts some of that five-spice, sweet 'n' sour, alongside cheap, chalky milk chocolate, bitter pink grapefruit and chocolate sponge pudding. Embers in the fireplace smoulder.
Finish
Chocolate with tingly, dried chilli flakes.
Comment
Egg fried rice, sweet 'n' sour chicken, and that Islay whisky, please…

Nose
Big bold nose, that Islay peat is hiding behind sweet sticky molasses, barbecued pineapple and honey chilli. Salted and dried pork. The ABV makes its presence known. Fresh wood shavings too.
Palate
That wonderful grilled pineapple and chilly prickle leaves an oily, mouth-coating deliciousness. Some citrus too zips across the palate. Coal tar soap lurks just at the end.
Finish
Long, sweetness, dark chocolate, lime and chilli.
Comment
Good heady dram with great smoke when it shows itself.
