Nose
Sensational. One's first impression is "Wow! This is so fresh and pure I've just got to taste it", but be patient, continue to inhale, there is so much more to enjoy: the dry crispiness of the barley becomes the perfect partner for the fruits of distillation - gooseberry, pineapple, melon, pear. Stay with it and you will find the mellow sweetness of prime American oak emerging gently, bringing Brazil nut and caramel. Add to that a drift of banana cake and you are now in olfactory overdrive. But there is more! The incredible wild flower aromatics (which can only come from a spirit matured full- term on Islay) create a wondrous slipstream.
Palate
The character and warming strength of the spirit upon entry is impressive. The aromatics never told the taste buds of this level of maturity. The sweet vanilla of Ozark Mountain oak is right up front bringing the structure with that hallmark homemade toffee flavour. The luscious freshness of fruit essence on mid palate is beautiful, performing alongside the delicious barley sugar, biscuity sweetness. It is show time for sure! The fresh floral notes have merged into a wild honey flavour which together with the marine/ lemon flavours highlight an illumination of the senses.
Finish
Multi-layered, elegant and classy; its warmth, sweetness and totally natural flavours extend inexorably in to a mellow space and are totally memorable.
