Islay Mist - Tasting Notes

Malty, coriander, seaweed, honey, grain, smoky, fruity, nuts, maritime notes

Spice, caramel, chocolate chip cookies, thyme, leather, pepper, cacao, nuts, citrus, salty seaweed

Nice and warm, dark honey mixed with smoke, dry, short.

7 out of 10. For the 20 euro's it is definitely not bad, not bad at all. With a drop of water it just gets some more fruit tones on the nose, and more chocolate on the palate. Without the drop of water its finish is a bit bitter/sour, combination of lime and nuts.

Tasting scores explained a bit. It all depends on the moment, ambiance etc, but to have a guideline for my own preferences. This differs for each person. See my wish list in the menu above to see what I prefer the most at the moment. A low score will not meen I will maybe give it a second chance on a later time, but for now it is not for me...

1-5   Mhmm... Not liking this one...
5-6   Don't have to wake me up for this, not bad, but not my preference
6-7   I like, but they just miss something, to make me wanna buy a whole bottle
7-8   Well, you can start waking me up for these, more depth, these I would love to add to my collection
8-9   These are to be enjoyed slowly. These I absolutely would love to have a bottle, but sadly not always in my price range. 
9-10 Well, what can I say, just wow...... No words to describe it. Wake me up now!!
