My first introduction to this whisky was not a good experience. Perhaps the bottle at the bar was older and didn't have much whisky in it, but the drink tasted very unbalanced. However, revisiting this bottle has been a much better experience. It's as salty as I remember, but as most Islay bottlings have show, this can change from day to day (due to changes in the palate). It's correctly balanced though and has a nice fresh and fruity taste that compliments the saltiness. It's certainly unique and I am happy with it. The aftertaste is very pleasant, just like Caol Ila 12 Year and Ardbeg 10 Year; very very fresh. It's like taking a bite out of a fresh apple...with some salt.
