Elements is a range of independently bottled single malts from the Isle of Islay whose packaging draws its inspiration from traditional medical laboratory labels and bottles. The bottle shape used is a 'stock' bottle which is actually called 'pharmacy'.
All the whiskies in the range are bottled in individual batches, typically blended from between five and twenty casks from a single distillery. The label of each bottle features an 'Element' symbol representing the distillery and batch number, so for example one could hazard a guess that Lp1 stands for first batch of Laphroaig and this LP4 is the forth. The bottles in this range do not carry vintages or age statements suggesting the vatting of casks of different ages.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/12/2013
Clear, golden amber.
Pencil shavings, coal dust/creosote, sacking and earthy liquorice with the smoke from a nearby peat fire lightly wafting across all.
Dry smoky tar, dry oak and coal dust with croissant pastry. Still raspingly smoky and dry with a splash of water, but delightfully so.
Smoky tar persists through the long finish.
