Category: Islay Single Malt Scotch

Date Tasted:
Country: Scotland

Bright golden amber color. Malty, toasty aromas of toffee coated triscuit, lemon custard on graham cracker crust, kiln and cinnamon toothpick, and grilled corn husk with a glycerous, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a sleek, engaging, medium-length smoked sage, cherry pie with mint, grilled pineapple and smoked ham skewer, and sea salt finish. A slightly peated, earthy and chewy single malt from Islay.

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.
