Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/04/2016

Appearance

Clear, mid-golden amber.

Aroma

Earthy, peaty and smoky with ash, bitter chocolate, fudge and brown bread. Faint orange zest. Water amplifies smoky peat with graphite (pencil lead) and coal dust emerging.

Taste

Full-bodied, earthy, peaty and smoky with chilli spice. Faint antiseptic, chocolate sponge cake. Green apple emerges with water (which this malt takes well).

Aftertaste

Chocolaty peat, coal dust and sweet liquorice with lingering chilli spice.

Overall

Earthy, peaty and smoky with notes of graphite (pencil lead) and coal dust. With a splash of water, rich fruity green apple and chocolate sponge cake emerge, making this Islay malt very enjoyable.
