Nose
Cardboard to begin with but some solid, sweet barley to give a semblance of balance. Fishy with earthy peat, sugar coated violets, bacon fat, meat and salt.
Palate
Initially sugary followed by cardboardy peat and hard barley. Briny on the middle which clears the sugars from the palate to leave oily, fishy notes.
Finish
Long and sweetly peated with lingering cardboardy notes. Sweet violet, peat after-taste.
Comment
The distillery character here is unmistakable! However there are just enough other elements to balance.

Nose
A lovely balance of vanilla, pear drops, smoke and hints of vintage leather on the nose.
Palate
A well-balanced palate giving more sweetness, big leather tones from the nose, culminating in a lovely sweet peat tone with a full and rounded flavour.
Finish
A hint of copper and peat smoke on the finish.
Comment
A lovely example of an island whisky from Scotland.
