One of the best-known Islay Whiskys even to none-drinkers. Took me a while to even get used to the particular smell of peat smoke and medicine and longer to appreciate the taste of even stronger peatiness and rubber. Not an everyday sipper for me and one some days it's the perfect dram.
Peat, smoke, chinese medicine, moss, wet grass
Cranked up notes from the nose, with additional rubber, iodine, roots and seaweed. Light mouthfeel and very smooth. Barely any burn from the alcohol.
Long aftertaste of smoke and medicinal bitterness. Unexpectedly not dry at all.
