Tasting Notes

Nose

A sea breeze carries aromas of lime, desiccated coconuts, pineapples and mango. Peaty, medicinal notes and tarmac keep it in check, with clove and star anise.   

Palate

The treats of a five year old: soft ice cream and digestive biscuits with marshmallow and coconut. Tempered by sea salt, medicinal bandages, charcoal and takeaway chopsticks.

Finish

Slightly prickly, as if chopsticks have splintered. Lime water, coconut and peat.

Comment

The winds blow Caribbean tropics to Islay.
