The nose indicated toasted marshmallows, strawberry toffee and fresh-made donuts, but also fish in a barrel and a railway workers’ hut. The unreduced palate was a beach barbeque feast of sizzling prawns smothered in chilli garlic butter with bonfire baked potatoes; then a deliciously smoky aftertaste of dried seaweed, balsamic glaze, honey and tar. The reduced nose transformed Islay into a desert island – fruits de mer, sweet turtle meat smoking over the fire, toffee s’mores and a washed-up case of Coca-Cola. The reduced palate became sweeter and more delicate – lip-smackingly juicy and coastal with muted smoke and slightly burnt flavours.
