Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/11/2011


Clear, light golden.


Wonderful whiff of Islay peat smoke with more subdued zesty orange crème brûlée, sweet almonds and buttery barley sugar.


Medium peaty smoked, sea salt palate with vegetal notes and zesty lemon and orange.


Long, dry finish holds the salty, smoky peatyness but tar and vanillins replace the citrus found on the palate.
