Description

50cl // 54.7% ABV

This is the fourth Islay whisky bottled from a distillery on the island whose name begins with Br… Elements range is bottled from small batches of carefully selected casks from a single distillery.

Fruity and sweet leading to developed barley notes on the nose. The fruits become more defined (apples and blackberries) with a honeyed sweetness leading to a distinct peppery quality on the finish.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Amazingly Fruity. Freshly-soaked barley with brown sugar & summer fruits. Develops damson, plum & a faint menthol hint, with some earthiness & a whiff of brine. Becomes more leafy when water is added.

Palate: Coal, barley sugar & burning wood. Creosote & treacle toffee. Then rosehip & tingling peppery spices. Liquorice & a pleasant doughiness. More assertive & savoury than the nose suggested but mellows with a few drops of water.

Finish: Lingering liquorice & hot peppery spices. A creeping growth of phenolic .intensity that slowly sets the tastebuds ablaze.
