Nose
Phenolic and marine. Oysters, creosote, tar. Some sweetness in the back. Aniseed lollipop. A mineral touch. Hint of smoke at start but more in time.
Palate
Sweet and mouthcoating. Satin-like texture. A salty sensation. Less iodinic on the palate than on the nose. Water tends to weaken the flavours.
Finish
Smoky, spicy. Refreshing liquorice.
Comment
The nose is more attractive than the palate. Obviously an Islander. Pleasant springtime outdoor dram though.

79
Nose
Harbourside in a working fishing port, tarry ropes, engine oil, fresh fish, sweet shellfish. The sweet note of warming wood. Distant smoke swirls through.
Palate
Sweet like a well cooked scallop and bacon, gentle iodine, a little smoky, hints of spices and cream. Quite oily, viscous and it coats the palate.
Finish
Lush and with a waft of peat.
Comment
A decent everyday drinking dram. All in balance.
