Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the background. The palate is full, round and tremendously complex. Water brings out a spice-laden, sweet vanilla character, as well. The finish lasts for many minutes.

(WA94) The formula for this whisky has changed slightly since its inception -- and I think for the better. They've added some Laphroaig into the mix of Caol Ila and Ardmore. This whisky demonstrates the layered complexity that can be achieved by marrying whisky from different distilleries and different regions. I particularly enjoy the rich maltiness and oily texture that provide firm bedding and flavor contrast to the classic Islay notes: tar, boat docks, brine, smoked olive, seaweed, and kiln ash. More subtle cracked peppercorn, mustard seed, and citrus fruit add complexity. Long, warming finish. Amazing how a small change in composition can significantly benefit the overall flavor profile of a whisky
Technical notes
Distillery Sourcing Islay single malts distilled in the village of Port Askaig as well as one from the south shore of the island. This is balanced with Ardmore and a single malt from the village of Brora. Wood Primarily a mix of first-fill and refill American oak, plus approximately 2% new French oak. Bottling Details Bottled at 48.9%. Not chill filtered. Natural colour.

Food pairing
A fantastic late-night digestif malt whisky. The magnum bottle makes it appropriate for parties
