Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Color: Straight Copper
Nose: Peat and Salt. Noticeably less medicinal than the other Islay drams. Smokey and damp.
Taste: More smokey peat and sea salt. Lightly oaked and flicks of candied orange. Clove maybe?
Finish: Medium to long with peppery bacon and ever present smoked peated barley.
Overall: A good drink in the signature Islay style. Overall I think I prefer the more medicinal side of peat, but that’s not to say this isn’t a solid whisky.
