Images of Islay – Carraig More Lighthouse

Rating: 6 out of 10

Nose: newmake, peat. Estery, fruity and peaty with some rubbery notes. This is clearly a very young whisky, but already it’s pretty well rounded. I’m surprised that it’s bottled at 53.2%, I would have expected it to be 43%. Very dominant notes of newmake. I would be surprised if it’s more than 6 years old. Sweet and mashy, but not cloying.
Mouth: sweet and rich. Peaty and slightly rubbery, also pretty hot.
Finish: sweet and clean.
