First bottle of Islay, reviewing after having it a week and and a dozen drams. Love the bottle, screams "I am Scotch! drink me!" Color is very pale and heavy. Nose: First sweet brine, salted nuts, butter-cream, malt and a little pear. Very pleasing Taste: As soon as it hits the tongue sweet butter-cream up front turning into a smooth, smokey peat and dry salt water with pepper keeping some sweetness from the butter-cream the whole way through. Complexity: You could try to pinpoint flavors all day, each time I have had this a taste other characters and depth. Finish: Very smooth, much smoother than you think its going to be, leaving a pleasant, creamy, smokey brine flavor that is dry making you want more.
