Product Description

Sourced from an undisclosed distillery on Islay. Struck by the beauty of this whisky, blenders left it completely untouched from the cask it was filled into. This Character of Islay expression is verdant and ever changing with an exceptionally long finish.

Aged Islay whisky is increasingly hard to come by, yet it is the character of such whiskies that Islay has built a global reputation upon. Smoke, sea and the perfect amount of sweetness makes this dram everything you want from an Islay expression.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose - Sea spray, malty maturity, hints of rubber with smouldering ash. Slight shellfish sweetness among wild heather and oily oak. Browning apples, nectarines and lemon vanilla, butterscotch, crisp bacon and jasmine tea.

Palate - Over a note of firewood there’s chewy vanilla toffees, apricot jam, juicy wood spices and a little dried barley. Elements of sour citrus and maritime salinity percolate among these flavours, while smoked almonds and grass clippings reside pleasantly underneath.

Finish - Swirling complexity, the finish leaves a juicy impression, an almost agricole-esque note which rises through the sweet smoke.
