Golden amber color. Aromas of whole peppercorns, dried orange peel, caramel, bergamot, and iodine with a silky, vibrant, dryish medium body and a warming, appealing, long black toast, butter, sea spray, and shitake mushrooms finish. A spicy, dry Islay single malt with great structure.

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.
