Lp9 - Elements of Islay Producer Notes
Nose: Coal fires, candy floss and lobster pots. Thick, dense smoke combines with notes of kirsch. The peat becomes more medicinal, showing classic distillery character. Darker, almost burnt-tyre notes remain.
Palate: Juicy, with rich stewed fruit and smoked salt. Well balanced and reminiscent of perfectly cooked game meat covered in a port and redcurrant sauce. Notes of beach BBQ, charred mackerel and sweet langoustines develop, reminding us of a perfect summer day on Islay.
Finish: Smoked sea salt and dark fruit linger, leaving the palate slightly dry and ready for a second sip.
