I will set out my stall from the very beginning. I love it!
This was a early purchase of mine and I was apprehensive at spending this kind of money on one bottle. However, it has changed my perspective of value when it came to Whisky. It forged an important part of my early love and education of Whisky.
The nose is very very smokey. A sweet with hint of vanilla with a waft of Arbroath Skokie.
If you don't fall in love with your first sip then take another. This is the most smoke laden drink I have ever tried. It is almost over powering in its intensity, rich, thick and woody. The sherry sweetness blends perfectly and the smokey peat rolls on and on.
It finishes with spicy, sweet smoke and rolls on and on with a magnificent smokey finish.
If you like Islay or want to try something different then this is exceptional and a must buy.
