Tasting Notes

Nose

Sooty and oily,like an old Hornby train engine. There are some citrus notes too.

Palate

Big,powerful and oily but with sweet pear and tinned exotic fruits mixed up\rin the coal dust and holding their own in the smoke.A powerful double act.

Finish

Long,with more of the tinned pear and charcoal.

Comment

A monster. It's rare to get independent bottlings from Islay this good. Up there with the big boys.
