A 16 year old independent bottling of Islay single malt by our friends at Speciality Drinks.
Sampled on 25/01/2016
Clear, golden amber.
Pungent earthy peat, smouldering oak, tobacco leaf and cigarette ash with honey, walnuts and amontillado sherry.
Full-bodied and almost chewy. Honeyed sweetness and dried fruit balances earthy peat, dry lightly spiced oak and coal dust.
Barbeque charcoal, coal dust, white pepper and smouldering ashes.
This independent bottling screams Islay with earthy peat, dry lightly spiced oak and coal dust beautifully offset by honeyed sweetness and rich dried fruitiness.
