Nose
Grassy. Drying hay with a musty hint. Running honey. Distant smoke. In time, creosote aromas fill the glass. The kiln the day after.
Palate
Sweet and silky. A caressing feel. The same grassy profile. Cereal, vanilla and can be a bit fizzy.
Finish
Grassy with a smoky aftertaste.
Comment
A young Ileach, close to the new make. The cask has not imparted much. But a clean dram. Refreshing and tonic.

Nose
Like standing at the harbour's edge. Has a smoky and medicinal quality but some soft fruit is here.
Palate
That coal tar soap edge cuts through the spices. Malty notes pervade and that sweet fruit note comes through.
Finish
Smoked and short.
Comment
Should please the Islay fans, has all the right pieces in the right place.
