The nose on this is smoked BBQ and corn. The palate tastes like BBQ ribs, very unique profile here, smoked salmon. The finish is really smokey, much different from what you may think as an Islay scotch, it’s more like a smoked fish or rib meat. I tried this a few times, the first time I really liked it. However, by a second and third dram I had lost my taste for it. It tasted like BBQ that had way to much sauce on it. Meh…. I think that it’s unique and worth trying; however, I’m unlikely to ever purchase a bottle. B-/C+
