Gold color. Aromas of fruit cup, cigar smoke, leather, iodine, and black licorice with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, complex, long grapefruit, cumin, cinnamon, and saffron finish. Endless complexities lie within this golden dram; alluring smoke, exotic citrus, and curiosity-sparking spice bring you to another sip.

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.
