Golden amber color. Aromas of almond tea cakes, buttercream, nori, cashew, coconut sago, and licorice with a round, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, very long autumn leaves, smoked peppers, spiced custard, and pastry finish. A velvety and concentrated Islay single malt that tantalizes the senses with a decadent combination of sweetness and smoke.

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.
