This distiller is better known for unpeated whiskies, but we started the Elements of Islay Bn range with something very different – an oily and smoky dram. Crisp and zesty, with floral, nutty and orchard fruit notes, Bn1 shows a different side to the distillery’s character.
Core FlavourPeat smoke and praline
Cask detailsDistillates from the mid 1990’s matured in American Oak Hogsheads
NoseFresh and perfumed, with grass, flowers, dry hay and crisp peat smoke. Nutty flavours sneak in behind: praline and nougat.
