The Hearach Tasting Notes

Isle of Harris aren't releasing official tasting notes, instead they're asking individuals to right a few words as to what they get from the whisky. Here's an example from Shona Macleod, Carragreich, Isle of Harris:

“I get a gentle peat smoke on the first sip which reminds me of island home fires burning when I was growing up. It comes along with a toasted maltiness. I can also taste homemade apple sauce and smell machair flowers, particularly white clover which springs up on our west coast every summer. Mixed spices appear, and an old-fashioned sweetness from things like candied ginger, vanilla, and honeycomb. Finally, there’s a long, clotted-cream note, mixed with a lasting sense of new leather.”
