APPEARANCE : Golden Treacle NOSE : Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing. BODY : Full and rich. PALATE : 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.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Chairman's Trophy. Integrated aromas of dried fruit, wood smoke and toasted grains impress deeply; full-bodied, but elegant flavors include toasted marshmallow, cigar smoke and walnuts.
