An interesting Islay this one - peaty but very sweet. Not so much a typical sherried type of sweetness (I assume this is the influence of the Madeira casks?) but more reminiscent of vanilla sponge cake sweetness. Cupcakes or fairy cakes? A hint of fudge perhaps? With water a lot of the sweetness goes, giving way to white wine notes.
I much preferred it undiluted. It's a rich, well rounded and very enjoyable malt.
