BREATH OF ISLAY 1999
21 Years Old Islay
Drawn from a refill American Oak PX Sherry Hogshead, golden syrup in colour with good beading. On the nose we have root ginger, orange blossom, fruit salad sweets, pineapple upside-down cake, oyster-shell and dockside brine. On the palate we have white peach, mandarin, salted milk chocolate, and Bavarian smoked cheese. Earthy and turfy with soft, billowing smoke. An exceptionally complex, layered whisky which is surprisingly bright for it’s age.
