Nose
There's an initial whiff of glue but then the smoke builds. This time it's tar and creosote,liquorice and a lightly fragrant note. Water reveals bay leaves and drying fishing nets.
Palate
Very sweet start,patisserie,melon then it shifts gear and becomes kiln like (dusty) with pipe tobacco.
Finish
Fresh fish oatcakes and after an age, wellies.
Comment
This has an extra dimension and added energy. Beautiful balance.

A more rounded peat reek than the previous dram. Slight plastic edge, damp seaweed and wet pebbles.
Palate
Sweet at first then moves into a more earthy notes.
Finish
The smoke comes in waves.
Comment
Islay in a glass,it will take you back there instantly.
