From their website: Nose – The bouquet amazes with the freshness of the spirit, the first notes to evolve are honey & lemon zest derived from the cask & salt encrusted barley. Then savour aromas of flora & fauna growing wild on the peat- lands & coastline of Islay, followed by the soft fruits from distillation, the sweetness of sun- dried barley, the creme-brulee notes of caramelised wood sugars provided by the 100 year old american oak. Transport yourself to Islay simply by closing your eyes and inhaling. The key to this spirit is the unique citrus freshness of barley grown in salty soil. Amazing.
