Nose
Peat in the jar ! The kiln the day after or the bonfire going out under a drizzle. Touch of barley sugar and vanilla.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Smoked haddock. Lemon drops. Cereal bowl.
Finish
Short and vanishing on smoke.
Comment
A pleasant young islander (an Ileach obviously). Refreshing,wrapped in smoke,easygoing. To quench the thirst after a walk.

Nose
Sooty and oily,like an old Hornby train engine. There are some citrus notes too.
Palate
Big,powerful and oily but with sweet pear and tinned exotic fruits mixed up in the coal dust and holding their own in the smoke.A powerful double act.
Finish
Long,with more of the tinned pear and charcoal.
Comment
A monster. It's rare to get independent bottlings from Islay this good. Up there with the big boys.
