Tasting Notes

Nose

Bold peat smoke, slightly burnt egg custard, natural yogurt, a lingering shellfish note and something earthy/mossy - wet river pebbles covered in algae.

Palate

Plenty of fiery peat, almost gingery and drying, with a touch of white pepper and intense cinnamon.

Finish

The peat turns slightly medicinal with time (and water).

Comment

Try describing 'Islay' to someone who has never visited before. If they still don't get it, give them a dram of this.
