Nose
Briny.Smoky. Rooty peat.Hint of violet. Tarmac after a summer shower. Seaweed bonfire. Rich and invigorating.Touch of lemon zest.
Palate
Firm and sweet. That lovely deep maltiness wrapped in smoke. Dances on the tongue. Tangerine. A light touch of TCP.
Finish
Dry,spicy,fizzy.
Comment
That dram gives you a briny hug. It warms you without burning. A zesty queen of the Hebrides.

Nose
Curious Oriental food note (chow mein?) some coconut and tarry smoke.With water it's all change,with cleaner and zingy lime notes.
Palate
Savoury olives and artichoke,sweet and woody,with a distinctive peaty and earthy underlay.
Finish
Quite long; rustic,with some salt and pepper.
Comment
A solid performer but not in the same league as the 1982 25 Years Old.
