Nose
Green apple, white pepper, herbs, medicinal peat and iodine. Underpinned by some baked, sour fruit, coffee, tar and edgy grain notes.
Palate
Sweet and juicy barley before the sweet smoke, iodine, medicinal peat and coffee arrives. Tarry on the middle but the sweetness of the spirit balances.
Finish
Long, salty, grainy, herbal, medicinal and peaty. Drying, but the late arrival of oils leave the mouth coated in a lovely sooty, smoky residue.
Comment
The Islay component is quite dominating but there is a lovely balancing sweetness from the other malt components.

Nose
Earthy, smoke with an Oloroso sherry overtone, hot buttered crumpets by an open fire.
Palate
Spicy Dominican cigars, underpinned with barbecued pineapple and green herbs.
Finish
Earthy and herbaceous. Basil and thyme.
Comment
A little too ‘green' for me, it could do with some more body, but the flavours are good.
