Intro: A 330ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with pretty much no head or lacing.
Aroma: Peat and leather dominates, with notes of chocolate, coffee and oak in the background.
Taste: Peaty, leather, tar, roasty, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, with light boozy notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: No surprise with an Islay BA that peat and leather dominate both the aroma and taste. If you enjoy peaty whisky, this could be your thing. Luckily, this is something that I like.
