Nose
A little woody dryness then chocolate, coconut, marzipan. Some glueiness and menthol.
Palate
Thin and drying. Cough candy. Cinnamon. Cloves. Toasted coconut. Sandalwood.
Finish
Seemingly short, but, just when you think it's all over, a long, lingering, Fino infused finish.
Comment
For the end of the evening. Of considerable complexity and will require several attempts before it's cracked. Not for everyone.

Nose
Estery, salty and fruity (peach slices and baked apples). With water up comes fennel, satsuma and melon. Also a husky, gristy character.
Palate
Fruity, tingly and lightly peaty.
Finish
Dry and biscuity.
Comment
A pleasant and balanced malt with a definite island character, but given the choice available from this great distillery, it pales.
