This lovely dram came in via a friend who’s parents had just been in Scotland and had picked this up from the distillery on Skye!
Eye: Ruby amber
Nose: Medicinal and iodine infused. No peat punching through. Fruity but in a rich and restrained way.
Palate: And there it is that amazing Talisker maritime explosion! Medicinal fruits and the smoothest of oak influences. Peat is kicking in there with the iodine. Very smooth.
Finish: Full of oil. Iodine, peat and well rounded malt ride this one out.
Age: 18yr’s Old
Region: Isle of Skye
A high quality maritime influenced malt. Good for when I want some peat but am not keen for the full Islay smoke kick. Highly recommended.
Keeping things smooth here is a song from Roots / Reggae band Groundation.
