Dark amber color. Aromas of fresh whole wheat baguette, toasty custard tart, sweet potato, smoked apricot preserve, and concord grape with a round, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, elegant, long violet, cinnamon, seaweed, charred pastry, night blooming jasmine, and black tea finish. A terrific Islay Single Malt that leaves the imbiber with a lingering, traveling flavor experience.

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.
