Islay single malt scotch whisky

This holds the accolade of being the first independently bottled whisky from the distillery, and even now is one of a small handful that has been released. A young distillery, this whisky shows surprising maturity and complexity while keeping its fresh and fruity character – a triumph.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Crisp and fruity, with sour apples, sherbert lemons and sweet grain. Behind that are layers of smoke and minerality: coal dust, damp wood smoke and singed lemon zest.
  • Palate

    Thick and oily in texture, with intense citrus, pine and smoke. Menthol notes develop, along with gravelly minerality and pungent peatiness.
  • Finish

    Long and zesty, with orange peel, sherbet and crushed green leaves.

Kh1 Reviews

  • Oily. Very sweet and smooth. So surprising for a high strength ! “Pastilles du mineur” (tar and liquorice cough lozenges). A slight cardboard note.

  • Young but already with such balance. Recommended stuff.
