Deep amber gold Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. Full, rich.

Michael Jackson?s notes `Nose: Lapsang Souchong and fruity sherry. Palate:The dryness is at first offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. As the palate develops oily grassy and in particular salty notes emerge in a long sustained aggressive attack. Finish: A huge powerful bear-hug of peat. The driest of Islay malts and an established classic.`
