ISLAY

Bowmore 12 year 8

Coastal smoke and ash soon make way for bergamot, orange zest, lemon and some hay before

becoming rather floral, heather smoke with the ash.

Bowmore 18 year 13

Spirity at first, then gives way to perfume, fruit, plum jam. A good sweetness, peat smoke.

Laphroaig 10 year 7.5

Seaweed-led, with a hint of vanilla ice cream and more than a whiff of notes from the first aid

box The oak is big, and muscles its way into the fore as you hold this whisky over your tongue.

An upsurge of spices develops - cardamom/black pepper/chilli.

Lagavulin 16 year 9.5

Very thick and rich. A massive mouthful of malt and Sherry with good fruity sweetness, but also

a wonderful sweetness. Big, powerful peat and oak.
