Tasting Notes

Taster: Martine Nouet

Nose: Phenolic. Smoky, sooty. Briny. Delicate floral and fruit notes make their way behind the smoke screen. Freesia.


Palate: Caressing, satin-like. Smooth and sweet with a big smoky flavours. Smoke roasted salmon. Then citrus notes. A salty feel on the tongue. Drying on dust and soot.


Finish: Lingering, smoky and sweet. Soothing on candied grapefruit.


Comment: The smoke is omnipresent. A thick curtain which unveils luscious malty notes though. Islay on the nose and on the tongue.
