    I’ll take my peat with a side of peat please. On the nose this Caol Ila expression sings maritime hymns that would make any Atlantic pirate feel right at home. However, on the palate this dram sings one note only and does nothing to express itself beyond the salty sea. Not enough sweetness to cut the peat, only a touch of smoke to let you know it’s remotely there. The finish is much hotter and shorter than that of a well-manicured 12-year old whisky. Worth a try but nothing to get all giddy about, unless you love gargling sea-water.

    Maybe the best introductory Islay out there; creamy, friendly and a dash of smoke. Nose: Soft smoke, like the first wisps from a fire. Garden vegetables, sliced pear and melon A touch of salted caramel topped with whipped cream. Palate: Fresh wood fire and smoked meat A hint of peaty, iodine but softens quickly Honey and zippy apples Graham crackers and baking spices There’s a half and half or oil roundness Finish: Round, soft and creamy. Smoky meat and spice lingers Ends with juicy melon and zingy apples
