Nose
Vegetal. Green. Or is that suggested by the Chartreuse colour? Or the shade of undiluted real absinthe. A very pretty whisky.
Palate
Light but oily. Fragrant. Junipery, fruity. Peppery. Phenolic.
Finish
Very dry. Reminds me of alder smoke.
Comment
Young and hot. If that sounds flirtatiously sexy, you have the right idea.

Nose
Juicy, smoky with iodine notes. There's sooty chimneys, rock pools, seaweed, crepe bandages and burnt sticks on the beach.
Palate
Slightly bitter with some citric notes which are then given a blanket of peat smoke and iodine.
Finish
Long. Smoky. Medicinal.
Comment
You can see why blenders adore this. For those who like their Islay malts aggressive, zesty and smoky.
