Nose: Upfront there is an exceptional depth and balance with a seductive mix of toffee and chocolate sweetness alongside cinnamon and medicinal phenols. As the beer warms slightly it is followed by citrus and floral notes of white wines evident as melon and overripe pear.
Taste: An initial clean sweetness then briefly comes into play a mouthfeel of deep peat notes, sea salt, smoked fish, tobacco smoke and strong espresso coffee.
Finish: Lasting with a seaside campfire smoke.
If you love Islay high peat scotch then you are in for a treat and if you are not then take at least three sips to allow you palate to adjust to these intense, yet balanced flavors before passing your glass and we promise you will not be disappointed.
