Nosing:
Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.
Taste:
Sweet and luscious; a clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.
Finish:
Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and “more-ish”.
