Bright, saline, briny peat hits you on the nose. After the first wave subsides, you can pick up the sweetness, dark chocolate, red berries, sherry, vanilla, toffee. Salty iodine peat on the palate. Some sweetness there, but not as much as the nose suggests. Finish, salty peat, mid-length. Not my favorite ever Islay. I feel like it would fall in the Talisker camp of very briny smoke.
