TASTING NOTES

COLOUR : Bright Red Gold

NOSE: At bottling strength the aroma seems quite closed giving only a rich, sweet scent but a touch of water releases all the multitude of different flavours. The initial sweet, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but the time-honoured Islay peat tang. After this opening burst of flavour there is a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in the background.

BODY: Rich round and full.

PALATE: The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness.

FINISH: Very long and warming leaving a distinct tang of Islay.
