70cl // 49.7% ABV
Bottled by our own fair hands during Fèis Ìle 2014 (the Islay whisky festival), the whisky in question was distilled in 1995 and matured for nearly 19 years in a single Oloroso butt. No filtration here either (we even turned down the sieve)- it went straight from cask to bottle so there’s a load of charcoal goodness in there too! Each bottle also comes with its own bag and certificate of authenticity
Nose: Awesome. Deep, dark caramel poured all over Corinth raisins. Melted dark chocolate, sticky prunes, orange peel and marzipan. A few drops of water brings out a shed load of black cherry.
Palate: Drying Sherry and chocolate goodness, sea salt and chocolate truffles.
Finish: More dark, rich cherry and chocolate. Just delicious. Get in my face.
