Ileach – 2012 bottling

Nose: salty, smoky and sour. BBQ-smoke and ashes. Not very peaty, funilly enough. Extremely maritime and ‘fishy’. Grilled fish, smoked haddock, pickled gherkins, course mustard. Slightly medicinal, and hints of codliver oil.
Mouth: quite sweet, and far less smoky than expected. In line with the nose, but more oily.
Finish: short and slightly vegetal, snapped branches. Honestly, it’s also a bit boring.

Rating: out of 10
