Single cask whisky from an undisclosed distillery in islay. Bottled at cask strength by Alistair Walker for 4th batch of his infrequent flyers collection.
Colour: golden straw.
Nose: autumnal. Sweet peat and char. Chimney smoke. Very soft medicinal islay notes emerge.
Palate: a lovely pleasant sweetness on the palate - butterscotch and custard creams in sync with the peaty, phenolic flavours. sweet barbeque - crispy bacon on pancakes doused with maple syrup. salted popcorn. peppery notes reveal themselves on the addition of water.
Finish: sweet, and a little spicy.
