Nose
Quite floral with apricots and pears. Some oak and vanilla notes showing through. There is some peat lingering in the background.
Palate
Lots of fruit, caramel, some hay. A wisp smoke and seaweed. With water it becomes sweeter, bringing out leather and more oaky notes.
Finish
Sweet, slightly fruity with gentle smoke. Well rounded.
Comment
Complex with a good balance of fruit and peat.

Nose
Distant moss fires, wood burning stoves, pine forests in the sun. Honey roast peanuts, brown sugar, violin cases and old music books, leather notes too.
Palate
Spices come through in waves, a little anise, ginger and cumin. Pipe tobacco. Sweetness of juicy fleshy fruits, mango and kiwi, then the peat ramps up.
Finish
Big explosion of peat and spices and then it dries.
Comment
Another stunner from Port Ellen.
