Islay single malt scotch whisky

While arguments over the influence of the sea on the production of Islay’s whisky still rage, this dram doesn’t care – it’s packed with seaside flavour. Crisp and briney with beach-bonfire smoke and layers of citrus, it’s a classic islander.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Crashing waves, hot leather and freshly sliced breakfast grapefruit with a sprinkling of fragrant flower petals. Rich and smoky peat fires build in the background, adding savoury notes and chocolate.
  • Palate

    Powerful peat smoke and spice with lemon, lime and grapefruit zest underneath. Sweetness grows in the glass, with citrus syrup balanced by charcoal ash and stony-beach minerality.
  • Finish

    Dry and ashy with orchard fruit sweetness and floral hints.
