Cask Type: not specified
Water added: YesNose: Smoke and peat with brine and oak and hints of vanilla and apricot.
Mouth Feel: Light, smooth velvet with a nice finishing edge.
Flavor: The nose hits this one perfectly – smoke and peat, with brine and oak and hints of vanilla and apricot.
Finish: Long, lingering peat and oaky brine. It has a bit of a harsh edge about it – in a good way.
Overall Impressions: A very nice example of the Islay style, if not a particularly complex example. The peat flavors dominate, but they are rounded off with a nice sweetness, that starts smooth and finishes a bit harsh. A great drink for a cool, rainy evening – especially with the sound of crashing waves in the background.
