Full-bodied and packed with honey’d malt, brown sugar, banana chip and elegant peat smoke notes, the 21 Year Old Isle of Skye blended Scotch whisky from Ian Macleod makes a very good impression indeed. If you’re a fan of the range, which features an 8 Year Old, 12 Year Old, 18 Year Old and the classic Smokehead 18, this one ought to be in your drinks cupboard.
