Tasting Notes

Details

Nose: Mineralic like freshly sliced tuna steak and pebble beach sea spray. There are hints of tropical stone fruit, kumquat and coconut with tarragon and delicate earthy/green smoke. Palate: Fruity sweet, creamy with hints of salt and smoke. This East coast Islay is like under ripe bananas or perhaps plantains roasted in their own leaf on a beach pit barbecue. Finish: Mellow smoke loiters whist you reminisce about tropical beach barbecues.
