Tasting Note by Douglas Laing & Co:
Nose: Anticipate burnt caramel, wafts of Hebridean sea air and notes of enticing peat smoke.
Palate: Delivers the ultimate distillation of Islay: reminiscent of bonfire ashes and rich earthy notes balanced by a toasted marshmallow sweetness.
Finish: Whilst these winter days may be short, the finish is satisfyingly long, with more of what went before.
