Aroma: The nose opens to the elegant Islay style, which has the scent of peat, malted barley, dunes and green fruits, fruit salad and lemons.

Taste: There is a slight taste of tobacco in the palate, which is combined with that of burnt butter and vanilla fudge. Reminds of wet soil.

Finale: Warm and spicy. It ends with a slight hint of a combination of smoke, leather, salt, smoked oak and dark chocolate.
