Description

A stunning nose of black olives and tropical fruit syrups. Notes of watermelon, guava and passion fruit. Then rock pools, gentle tar, sardines in olive oil, salted flatbreads, pickled onion, lemon jelly and iodine. There’s even a touch of rancio which is mad rare in Islay whisky. Standing on the end of a pier. Water unveils salted almonds, kippers, kiln smoke, preserved lemons, green olives in brine, cullen skink, cider apple, wildflowers and hessian. To taste there is an initial jet of boiler smoke then pineapple chunks, lavender oil, smoky barley, hay loft, sandalwood ash, beach pebbles, earthy turmeric, orange peel and heather honey. Water gives us smoked eucalyptus, menthol tobacco, unlit cigar, peat embers, ointments, gauze, elderflower and mineral bath salts. Stunning! Matured for 19 years in a bourbon hogshead before transfer to a 1st fill oloroso hogshead.
