Nose
A big hit of Islay. Salt, seaweed and Germolene. Also a newly-opened cigarette packet.
Palate
Sweet, fruity, developing wood smoke, spice, mixed herbs and bonfire embers. Carbolic soap.
Finish
Citrus fruit, sweet peat, pepper and medicine chests.
Comment
A complex yet approachable Islay.

Nose
Coal tar soap, buttered kippers, sea salt caramel and a hit of something medicinal: opening a plaster.
Palate
You get hit with a sweet, honey and fruity wave first, then the smoke comes, then spices build before the smoke returns.
Finish
Sooty and a little sweet.
Comment
Excellent stuff, another outdoor dram for sure.
