Palate – Balancing tastes that typically seem to be in opposition with each other is no easy task. But contradiction plays in the favor of this polite Islay sipper. Light and sweet, but still has the full backbone of rich ashy peat smoke. Some dry oak and must at the finish. Apple peels brighten up the mid-palate and counteract the briny sea-side quality. As this one opens, it brings in more raw honey sweetness and a touch more woody oak.
