This is a really well balanced Islay malt, I would say perhaps the archetypal Islay malt – if you’re trying to get a feel for what that ever popular category is, this is what you should try. It plays the three piece ensemble excellently, you have the gentle aromatic ash, the bright briny notes and the deeper cooling menthol bass. I found it a very harmonious mix where nothing was out of beat.
