I like virtually every whisky from Islay, which means I virtually always like a peaty, smoky whisky. This is not that, but it's made so skillfully it's an excellent addition to the island's output, even if by profile it's an outlier. This is a much sweeter dram, though I would not go so far as to call it sweet overall, nor dessert-y. It starts with graham crackers and spicy floral notes on the nose, with graham crackers carrying through the palate alongside fruity notes and bits of spice. This is complex and interesting enough for most drinkers but must be the most approachable dram from Islay that I've had. You certainly can't miss the bottle, and I have a feeling there will usually be one of those turquoise hydrants on my bar for years to come.
Love the flavor that develops.
