Slivery straw color. Inviting aromas of iodine, smoky pepperoni, pink grapefruit, ripe peaches, and speculoos cookies with a round, lively, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a peppery, very complex, endless sea salt, lilac, ginger beer, red and black licorice, and mace finish. An instantly appealing Islay malt; one whiff of this smoky-sweet treasure and you’ll be hooked.

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.
