Cl4

Islay single malt scotch whisky

Often overlooked due to its size, this distillery is increasingly becoming a favourite of peat fans thanks to whiskies like Cl4. Created from a small batch of hogsheads from a single vintage, it’s an assertive dram that shows both the distillery’s coastal character and the complexity of age.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Clean, crisp and refreshing, with ozone and sea-spray-freshness contrasting with pungent peat smoke, leafy herbs and singed lemon zest.
  • Palate

    This is a big whisky, with an intense hit of smoke and pepper to start. As you unpick the palate, it reveals more complexity and softens, with grapefruit and lemon zest mixing with earthy peat smoke and gentle brininess.
  • Finish

    Long and spicy, with black pepper and medicinal peat.
