Islay single malt scotch whisky

At release, this was the most anticipated Elements of Islay bottling yet – the first from the most famous closed distillery on the island. Bottled from a single first-fill sherry butt, it has fruit and smoke running through a weighty palate. A powerful dram, it takes water well, revealing nutty and coastal flavours.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Chocolate and gunpowder with flashes of citrus and dried tropical fruit. Rich savoury notes of smoked ham and game mingle with sharp berries and fruit shrub.
  • Palate

    Classic zesty lemon notes, with green leaves and a coastal tang, especially when water is added. The sherry influence is definitely noticeable, but sits around the edges, giving pungent tobacco, hazelnut, chocolate and raisin notes.
  • Finish

    Long and herbal, with rich fruit and smoke.

  • A perfect example of a successful marriage between peat and sherry.
