Beverage Testing InstitutePale golden color. Charred wood, caramel, phenolic peat and light iodine aromas. A round entry leads to a dryish medium-to full-bodied palate with golden raisins, brown spices peat, salt, honey and smoky wood flavors. Finishes with a sweet caramel, peat, and peppery spice fade.
Malt AdvocateOne of Cooleys finest efforts. Moderate doses of kiln smoke, dried turf, and kippers, tamed by vanilla cream, barley, and a buttery, olive oil texture. Subtle spices dance on the palate. Lingering smoky, white pepper finish. Islay meets Ireland.
