My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Honey, banana, lemon zest, vanilla, polished wood, blooming gorse, nutmeg and a whiff of smoke.
Palate: Medium peat, honey, vanilla, tropical fruit cocktail, ginger and nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: On the palate the smoke is a bit louder than a whisper, but this really is a very enjoyable island style malt.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
