Tasting Notes

Nose

Well rounded. Honey and cream with some sultana and light phenolic notes.

Palate

An immediate sootiness. Soft, dessert like with a dry smouldering border. Lovely, if a bit schizoid.

Finish

Gentle with teasing smokiness.

Comment

Cheaper than buying a distillery on Islay but what's next? Speyside finished Caol Ila or a cask aged in every region?
