Isle of Islay
Nose: A gently ashy Lagavulin expression, bolstered by pear drop boiled sweets, an iodine brine, orange oil and and a grassiness. Wafts of smoke become more prominent with time in the glass and a drop of water.
Palate: A medium-weight dram, on the palate the expression is sweeter than you’d expect from the nose, and the smoke is more pronounced, too. The pear becomes fresher and the orange more zesty, along with a gentle earthiness.
Finish: Medium-long and drying, with waft after waft of that seaside smoke.
Overall: Lagavulin with a delectable twist!
