Tasting notes by Jim McEwan
Colour - August Barley Fields
Aromas & Flavours: Opens on a come hither note of peat smoke with a marine overture which clearly indicates its homeland. The malted barley notes merge beautifully with the scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, orange & lemon peel with vibrant echoes of smouldering peat fires fanned by the Atlantic breezes. All leading onto a magical duet from Martinique and the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It’s a magical rare spirit with the character of two Islands thousands of miles apart coming together as one!
Throughout, the smokiness of the peat bathes the spirit in total harmony with the crispy sweetness of Islay barley, add the spiced apples, almonds and molasses providing a stunning platform on which the Islander can shine like a sunrise on Islay’s coast.
It’s a spirit that is wonderful and rare, when will we see its like again!
