Islay single malt scotch whisky
As whisky from this distillery gets older, the smoky notes mellow and a core of fruitiness is revealed. In Lg5 we focused on the fruit, but without losing the peat and smoke. The result is an ashy and tarry dram with a core of orchard fruitiness.
Core FlavourPoached pears and tarred ropes
Cask detailsTwo vintages matured in refill hogsheads.
NoseTarred ropes and coal ash sit up front, but with some time in the glass, fruitier notes appear – crisp and poached pears, rhubarb and sweet apple.
PalateOily in texture, with noticeable heat. The smoky notes are powerful, but a drop of water rolls them back to reveal a core of fruity pears and flamed orange zest.
FinishLong, with dry smoke and spiced pears fading to menthol.
