Elements of Islay - Peat Pure Islay Whisky 50cl 45% ABV
Matured in a Bourbon cask. Pale / water like appearance. Soft and fluffy on the nose with biscuity notes to the fore (granita, choc-ripple) plus faint citrus. Air contact shifts the accent to lanolin / wool shed. Still later a malty base note dominates along with cocoa.
Breezy, soft and drying in the mouth, especially towards the finish. Flavours of kipper, spiced citrus and light pepper, turning mineral dry to finish with lanolin lingering in the final stages. Evocative of young Lagavulin.
