A 16 year old independent bottling of Islay single malt by our friends at Speciality Drinks.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/01/2016

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent earthy peat, smouldering oak, tobacco leaf and cigarette ash with honey, walnuts and amontillado sherry.

Taste

Full-bodied and almost chewy. Honeyed sweetness and dried fruit balances earthy peat, dry lightly spiced oak and coal dust.

Aftertaste

Barbeque charcoal, coal dust, white pepper and smouldering ashes.

Overall

This independent bottling screams Islay with earthy peat, dry lightly spiced oak and coal dust beautifully offset by honeyed sweetness and rich dried fruitiness.
