Mac-Talla Terra Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Nose: Citrus notes, smoky barley and fresh sea air.
Palate: Clean woodsmoke, salty sea spray and a crisp, clean smoky finish. An absolute delight for any classic Islay whisky enthusiast.
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Natural colour; chardonnay. Coats my copita, with multiple legs running down my glass in neat parallel order.
Nose: Marzipan, cherries, and cherry stones. Gentle peat smoke. A minerality, like wet pebbles on a stony beach. Light oak with a touch of vanilla.
Palate: Medium body, which lightly coats the mouth. Almond cake topped with marzipan and served with vanilla cream. More peat smoke, but lightly so - used almost as a seasoning. Alcohol is well integrated, contributing to the body.
Finish: A medium finish with more vanilla cream and a touch of warming wood spice to conclude.
