Islay single malt scotch whisky

A beautiful marriage of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, but the emphasis is very much on the smoky character.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Medicinal, smoky aromas, with stewed fruit, charred oak and a mineral note.
  • Palate

    The smoke and peat still takes charge, although there’s a little citrus and tropical fruit trying to get out. Characterful woodsmoke and coal take hold, as the fruit gradually emerges.
  • Finish

    Perfectly balanced between the fruit and smoke.

Lp4 Reviews

  • Dry smoky tar, dry oak and coal dust with croissant pastry. Still raspingly smoky and dry with a splash of water, but delightfully so.

    Difford's Guide

  • Perfectly medicinal and smoky, and quite rounded and even smooth at that. This one is winking at the 1960s.
