Isle Of Skye 8yo 70cl 40%
Rich in distinctive island and mellow Speyside malts - matured in oak casks for 8 years.
AROMA: Stunningly evocative. Deep peaty tones waft from the glass, like the reek from a crofter’s lum. But there is a lot more beyond: the grains intermingle deliciously with oaky, vanilla notes and something malty and even slightly honeyed. The stuff of dreams.
PALATE: Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice. Massively flavoured. This creaminess continues for what seems hours.
FINISH: Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty.
The oak returns at the end.
