In a nutshell:
This famously robust Islay single malt is a deep, dry, exceptionally peaty bruiser.
Probably the most pungent of all the Islay malts this is their most sought after expression and the benchmark of the distillery. There's more to it than just the peat though, it has a richness with hints of Lapsang Souchong tea on the nose with a dryness that's offset by a sherry sweetness finishing with a lengthy, spicy sign off.
The very epitome of a smoky Islay single malt.
