A very citric eye with a kick of peat wet rainy weather.
This one is very young and stormy.
In the nose peat is very present. If you hold your nose 10 cm away from the glass you smell a very acid citrus chemical flavour. A little sweet wet sock makes place for sweet gampher. Some time later I smell the fresh mixed manure with fresh cut grass.
Sweet and sharp on the tongue it goes into the tongue and leaves a numbness for about two minutes. It lasts and lasts for another two to three minutes.
The finish is the first time short. The second nose is sweet herbs with a hint of wood and smoke. The second finish is again a little short, but very ok.
What to say this Islay has its own flavour. Somehow a rough Kilchoman.
