Review by Elements of Islay

Nose

Enticing and crystal clear, showing hot spices and menthol alongside coal-smoke phenols. Some faint bramble fruit slowly develops. Water brings forward cereal and toasty notes.

Palate

Powerful. Hot and peppery again, with distinctive chilli heat at the front of the tongue. Some honey as well. Youthful leafiness, and very exuberant.

Finish

Lengthy. Massive. Warming and still very peppery. Water seems not to diminish its power.

Note

Even bigger than Ar1, this is a peaty powerhouse loaded with flavour and character. The perfect marriage of ex-bourbon hogsheads with southern Islay spirit.
