Sourced from an undisclosed distillery, this is a perfect tribute to the enduring allure of Islay. Distilled in 1985, a time when distilleries on Islay were dramatically reducing production, being mothballed or lost forever - this bottling heralds Islay’s triumph in the face of adversity.
Quite the contradiction - one of many found on the island of Islay. Thanks in no small part to the earliest adopters of Islay Whisky and private cask buyers who kept the distillery in existence against all odds.
A whisky of profoundly bright character and charmingly accessible on the nose - the exclusive nature of this whisky only enhances it’s charms.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Ripe Tropical Fruits with hints of barbecued banana, giving way to smoky vanilla and a pervasive peatiness.
Taste - Opens with salty iodine, damp wood smoke and develops into sweet mango and candied ginger. Develops with a briney character, citrus and dried fruits.
Finish - Sweet, barley sugar, dried pineapple and bonfires extinguished by ale.
