Islay Single Cask Single Malt

Islay Single Cask Single Malt

GreatDrams Stand: B58

Our first cask from this batch won us two international awards, at the International Spirits Challenge and the London Spirits Competition, and so it felt only right that we repeat this release so sourced this cask from the very same distillery and month of distillation!

Hailing from the mystical island of Islay, matured in First Fill Bourbon Barrel and laden with beautifully balanced, classic Islay peated whisky notes as well as lovely soothing vanilla and soft, subtle fruit notes along with a welcoming chocolate too.

The island itself has an almost-magical aura about it that draws you back time and time again, this Islay distillery, located on the coast, looks over the gorgeous clear blue water.

In whisky, the ‘peaty’ note is more potent at a younger age as the spirit’s influence is greater than the wood of the cask’s influence, hence why we bottled this one at 7 years old – for the peat power!
