Amber color. Aromas of grand marnier, peat, chocolate biscuit, chocolate-covered caramel, fennel, and sea spray with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, subtle, long roasted coffee, black forest cake, maple, and chocolate Bavarian creme finish. A chocolate layer cake of an Islay malt with a voluptuous texture yet masculine-of-center style.

Islay is an island off the west coast. Traditional Islay malt whiskies are intensely smoky and pungent in character with a distinctive iodine or medicinal tang that is said to come from sea salt permeating the local peat that is used to dry the barley malt.
