Colour: Deep mahogany. Nose: Rich and smoky with seaside minerals with a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. Vanilla follows with oily unroasted chestnuts and a hint of fudge with a malty sweetness. A drop of water adds a creamy clotted cream note with fruit appearing in the form of unripe citrus in a flan glaze. Palate: Richly peaty with a spicy chilli bite. Finish: Short dry finish and a long sweet aftertaste.

Wine EnthusiastThis Islay single malt is all about the peat. Golden in the glass, the distinctly smoky scent hints at vanilla and honey underneath. Expect a big billow of smoke from the first sip, underpinned by subtle hints of honey, vanilla and sherry sweetness. The concentrated peat smoke leads right into the drying finish, plus hints of black pepper, iodine and spearmint astringency.
