Key Information

Sorrel chestnut/polished hazel.

The ultimate Islay six-pack. It's a war of the elements: gaelic skills, atlantic tempests, ancient oak, smouldering peat all detonate from the glass in a thunderstorm of hebridean spirit unrestrained by age.

Opens beautifully, balanced on malt, peat and young spirit. The youth and strength of the spirit infusing the aromas of green apple, mild mint, clove, bayleaf and forest greenwood. Given a dash of water and time little notes of meadowsweet, iris and honeysuckle put their head above the parapet but don't linger too long as the next wave of bracken and smoke with a slipstream of vanilla is out to overload the olfactory senses.

The madeira cask influence lies deep in the glass and brings the rich notes of syrupy dates and raisins which hold up well to the onslaught.

Absolute rock 'n' roll Islay. The heat of 61.6% plus 40ppm peat- and it's still only six years old together develop into a unique palate experience.

If you love peated malt this kid has the 'wow' factor. It's got an effervescence of spindrift and smoke, sweet citrus the texture of the spirit is awesome due to trickle distillation. It's the integration of all the characters of this island particularly the guys who made it - that gives this spirit a 100% Islay dna. This is a spirit that challenges, it exhilarates and it delivers big time.

Albert Einstein said: everything that is great and inspiring is created of individuals who labour in freedom. This spirit meets his vision.
