Berry Bros & Rudd
Nose: Deceptively gentle, offering traces of icing sugar and earthy smoke. Given time in the glass a muscular, coastal peatiness comes through.
Palate: Damp wool, icing sugar, delicate floral notes, and progressively more peat smoke.
Finish: Unmistakably Islay, fading slowly with flavours of kippers, tar and that lingering smoke.
