Would have liked something a little more bold and exciting but it wasn’t to be. Surprisingly sweet on the nose for an Islay and unfortunately a bit unremarkable. The nose had touches of honeyed raisins with a hint of oaky leather. The palate was much nicer as it introduced itself with subtle vanilla and caramel. The finish brought with it something woody. Something that felt like star anise. I’m in a good mood. I would drink this again.
