A really distinctive and distinguished dram, full of peat while the Pedro Ximinez sherry wood naturally has a big say; A more mellow Lagavulin, not quite as deep or intense as the 16 year old.This scotch comes from batch 504. It was distilled in 1989 and bottled in 2015.
Appearance: Golden Treacle
Nose: Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.
Body: Full and rich.
Palate: Sweet and luscious; a clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.
Finish: Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and “more-ish”.With Food: Works in an extraordinary way with intensely flavoured salty blue cheeses – Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola and Lanark Blue. Also excellent with anchovies on toast.
