Nose: A true Islay, it features quite some smoke and peat, with a gentle sea-sprat quality, citrus fruit (mostly lemons), and a hint of tar, and lots of creamy vanilla as well, more smoke and some ash.
Palate: This is one creamy Bowmore, and it looks like the casks were active , Not much information about the cask type, but i suppose it might be an ex-Bourbon / french Oak.. The lush vanilla mixes well with the peaty / smokey / lemony palate.
Finish: Vanilla, smoke, ash and lemon rind, pepper.
A solid young Islay indeed.
