From the archives. "Wooden Hospitals. The still-house, built in 1972, has a wall of glass facing the sound of Islay and looking towards the mighty Paps of Jura - an inspiration to the stillman. Bright, sunshiny yellow. The first nose is well-balanced with fruity sweetness along with expected coal-tar soap and delicate peat-smoke. It tastes good neat, with iodine and peat to begin, followed by a dry woodiness that betrays its age. Reduced, the nose has a definite hospital character, along with a citric note. The taste at drinking strength has surprisingly light body, a delicate smoke, with a very dry finish, like chewing green twigs. An expensive peaty aperitif?" Original price was £54 in 2003.
