Medium rich gold color. Inviting aromas of tar, sea spray, roasted pimento, dark chocolate, biscuit, and smoked seaweed with a slightly chewy, crisp, dryish medium body and a warming, layered, long caramel latte, toffee biscuit, brownie edges, and cardamom finish. A bold, smoky Islay Single Malt with huge waves of maritime flavor and rich biscuity appeal.

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.
