Nose: vanilla and fruit, intertwined with peat smoke, earthy peat and some brine. then back to the sweet malty notes as well as spices , vanilla and pepper. [I tried comparing this to Caol Ila 18 i have , and it’s a perfect match Islay wise… very similar notes.] A peppery Kugel, made before Shabbat. wow.
Palate : Starting with an assault of spice (pepper) , then peat-smoke , tar, with cereal sweetness on the sides. great balance and harmony of tastes.
Finish : Long with smoke staying there for quite some time, a wee fruitiness .
Wonderful marriage of highlands , Islands and Islay. Well made. great balance,and the interplay between peat smoke and fruit is lovely.
