Nose
Peaty. A mix of creosote and sulphur. The malty character struggles to shine through behind that wall. A touch of vanilla.
Palate
Smooth,thick almost syrupy. Very sweet. Far less phenolic than on the nose. Smoked chicken,star anis.
Finish
Dry,slightly sour.White pepper.
Comment
A phenolic fellow. Tough on the nose, sweet on the palate. But the aromatic profile is not exciting.

Nose
Empty fish boxes,musty boat sheds after a wet winter
Palate
Messy battle between oak,peat,a strange off note and oily fish. No obvious winner.
Finish
Long and peaty,distinctly Islay
Comment
Does little to enhance the distillery's reputation.
