Tasting Notes by Eye-lah-Guy
This solid Islander (and smoky big brother to Tobermory) is a nice alternative to the more familiar and aggressively peaty Islay whisky, but may still offend those with lighter tastes.
Subtle-sweet fruit followed by tangy vanilla extract and gentle smoky malt, with an underlying earthy peat not dominating, but backing the entire proceedings. Consequently, balance is impressive. Finish is warm and pleasantly honey sweet, with a horseradish-like blast, peat rising from ground level and fading into subtle seaweed and salty coastal shores. A singular whisky.
