Not your typical Islay malt, but a really nice dram all the same. Initial nose has butter, smoke and sweet nuttiness. Also a bit of burning wood. Adding water releases some hay aromas. On the palate, I'm reminded of honey on toast. With some burnt cereal and a touch of tobacco. With water, the flavours become more floral, with grassy hints and some more wood notes. The finish is smooth and malty.
A very enjoyable, drinkable dram, one that could be enjoyed anytime. A good 'mid-weeker'!

Nice whisky and good description! To that I would add good "all-nighter" - first time I tried this was staying up to watch results of '97 election. Portillo loses his seat, yay, let's have another!
