The nose is exactly what you expect it will be, sock you in the face Islay peat and brine. Big and peaty and oceany. The palate mostly follows suit but with a trace of sweetness. You can definitely taste the youth. Very little of the sherry finishing comes through. The finish is a very nice blast of peat.

 

This is a good, solid Islay malt.
