Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonQuite some oily pretty oomphy peat smoke in here. Of the coastal vanillaish kind. Pretty refreshing, yet some berries and vanilla in there also. Excellent taste on the pure white smokiness, berries, pristine and refreshing. Not bad anywhere. White peppery aftertaste, oily despite it's freshness. Moreish.
Krishna NukalaTypical Islay- Laphroaig or a Port Charlotte.Highly phenolic- lots of salt, full bodied vigour, a lovely dram for a cold winter night to warm you up!(Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
