For centuries the stormy weather of the Atlantic Ocean has not only shaped the character of the people of islay but also the character of their world famous whiskies. In many ways this fine malt mirrors the character of the islay people – strong yet gentle, warm yet mellow but with a maturity beyond its years. Robustly peaty, with that unmistakable breath of the seashore.
NOSE: Youthful peat, herbal notes, oak, grassy, notes of the coast.
PALATE: Sublimely smooth malty notes, peat, peppery spices, tannins, a touch of fruit.
FINISH Faint iodine. Coastal notes, malt.
