Tasting Notes

Nose

Mature aromas of violet tinged earthy peat, dusty American oak, barley, liquorice, coffee and gentle spices. Deep and aromatic with a light coastal nuance.

Palate

Initially quite sweet and like the nose quite violety with just a distant echo of peat. Dusty American oak notes build on the middle joining the beautiful mature malt. Again, a light coastal nuance balances the sweetness.

Finish

Wow! What a finish! Now the salt really kicks in but the oak and violety peat lingers. \n

Comment

That is a fine old Islay malt. Beautifully mature but still alive and kicking.
