Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/11/2016


Clear, bright coppery amber with polished gold highlights.


Honey, barky wood, old leather, hay bale, ashtray, shoe polish, peach and faint peaty smoke.


Honeyed sweetness, nubuck leather, pear, apple pie, candied ginger, cinnamon and black pepper spice with ashtray smokiness.


Long sweet vanilla and leather with nutmeg and pepper spice. Mild smoke.


The smoky ashtray and shoe polish notes in this blend make it somewhat polarising. Some with love and admire its distinctive character others will yearn the return of the former Islay Black Bottle blend.
