Tasting Notes

Nose

Almost kippery in its style of smokiness. Beguiling!!

Palate

The sweet coating of malt is defenceless against the pulsing peat.

Finish

Magnificently long. The balance is exemplary with the oak confined to bitter chocolate amid the intensifying malt.

Comment

This is whisky for the true connoisseur; exactly how a great old Islay should be. But why, oh why, did this distillery have to die?
