2010, SMWS

Single malt - Islay

Golden

66.5% ABV

Nose:

Tasting:
Sweet salty. Chillies, smoke, peat, char siu, brine, honey, hints of pears.
Finish: Long. Smoke, peat, brine, pears.

Comments:


Peaty, meaty, rounded in the mouth. A very appetising dram, though not satisfying. Leaves one wanting more, and more, and more. Not very good for me at the moment, but I did manage to keep myself to one. It was a crime to leave some of the dram on the table though.

Verdict:


I like this a lot.

Sorry Rene, I missed the chance to buy a bottle as well. By the time I got to the Society rooms they were only selling drams...
