Massive, peat-smoke typical of southern Islay, yet with a dry finesse that makes up a classy package. Apparently the teetotal Johnny Depp sometimes orders a dram of this and just sniffs it (it's that good). This is becoming hard to find through many other retailers.

Keir's Tasting Notes
A real stunner. Great complexity on the nose. The bouquet starts with antiseptic ointment, then hot wax, orange marmalade, rubber bands, and some toffee – and going back a few minutes later there were some meaty bbq aromas. A sweet, creamy palate with a bit of peat to follow.

Whisky Magazine Tasting Notes
Nose: Lapsang Souchong and fruity sherry.
Palate: The dryness is at first offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. As the palate develops, oily, grassy, and, in particular, salty notes emerge in a long, sustained, aggressive, attack.
Finish: A huge, powerful, bear-hug of peat.
Comment: The driest of Islay malts, and an established classic.
