You’ve probably noticed that we like to keep a secret every now and then, and the name of this Islay single malt will remain under wraps. Nope, no clues whatsoever... Such mystery. Wow.
Nose: An underlying sweet fruitiness; oranges and pink grapefruit, is masked by waves of earthy peat smoke. There’s coke too, no not that coke, coke and ash from a blacksmith's forge.
Palate: The smoke is mellow, and it’s sweet toffee and liquorice that lead followed by an oily maritime feel with a salty tang.
Finish: Oily, salty liquorice, and a sweet smoke lingers, and lingers, and lingers…...did I mention it lingers?
