          Tasting Notes

          Nose

          The nose opens sugary sweet ahead of a citric, oceanic, beachy and warm cereal backdrop.


          Palate

          The mouth-puckeringly salty palate is so Islay in style with bonfire ash, smoking peat and coal dust.


          Finish

          Catch smoke on the finish with soft chewed leather, chimney soot and a phenolic creosote style (FHL).

            TIME-HONOURED TRADITION
