Producer’s tasting notes.
NOSE: Dark butterscotch, cocoa–sprinkled hazelnuts, soft banana, prune syrup, plump dark raisins and Amaretti biscuits all jostle to take centre stage. The nose will also detect a zephyr of salty sea breezes. After the initial fiesta experience has calmed, beautiful soft green fruits emerge bringing lychee, passion fruit, melon and mango along with the sweetness of maltose and barley sugar.
PALATE: The full power and passion is best experienced without the addition of water. However, we leave that to you. It is a Grande Reserva or in Gaelic bivalarfad – “Absolutely beautiful!”.
FINISH: A cultural melody, the wildness of Islay and the warmth of Spain combined in a unification of flavours that is heart-warming and haunting.
