The first whiff of this is big and peaty, just like you would expect. But it's not the raw charcoal peat of most younger Islays. There is a smooth, even sweetness here. Sticking your nose in this glass is like sitting next to a fireplace fueled by apple wood, pleasant and warming.

The taste is like high quality cocoa. It is big and buttery but with the slightly bitter edge of dark chocolate. This dram may be smooth but it is not shy. It coats the mouth and fills the nose. It is big and bold, almost too rich for my taste. But it goes down so smoothly I can't help but go back for another.
