Category: Islay single malt whisky
Product of: United Kingdom
A limited release launched in October 2014, Ceòbanach (pronounced ‘kyaw-bin-och’), which means ‘smoky mist’ in Scots Gaelic, is an apt name for a whisky with such a salty smoke influence. Aged for 10 years in ex-bourbon casks this peaty Islay malt was bottled without chill-filtration.

Intensely flavoured with very slight sweetness balancing salt, smoky peat and dry oak. Attractive buttery oily notes with vanilla and chamois leather.
Long finish with lingering smoke and buttery vanilla oak.
