Cask - 50% American Oak 50% Refill Sherry. Colour - Warm amber, harvest honey gold. Body - The luscious silky smooth supple texture caresses the palate. It's full and focussed and requires lots of aeration time. Nose - An explosion of fruit unbelievable for a spirit of this age. The aromas have moulded beautifully together over the long maturation. Palate - A truly delicious liquid satin mouth feel. The sweetness of the oak vanilla tingles the toungue keeping the fruits in check, but only for a little while, then they too join the party. Creamy and delectable, with just a hint of lemon to remind us of its Island location. Finish - Extended aftertaste that seems to go on into the sunset.
A genuine Islay classic.
