Colour: Yellow gold, later summer barley.
Flavour: The opening notes are of soft, really ripe gooseberries, fresh pineapple and mango. It is harvest time in a global orchard, sweet red apple, plump green grapes and even a hint of peach. It is a brilliant opening leading you further into the garden where you can enjoy the harmonious aromas of carnations, mimosa and mint. Night scented stocks and lilies drift on a mid-summer breeze, continuing through the golden fields of Islay Barley. This is a Hebridean journey like no other, but wait, the sweetest vanilla notes are emerging with hints of spicy bourbon and a touch of toasted oak. Dark plums appear with dates and that Oloroso richness that only Jerez casks can provide.
Taste: The taste is directed.  Malty sweet, cereal, honey, clean and citrus fresh. A stunning example of how trickle distillation using victorian equipment and 134 years of practice can produce a young spirit that needs not the weight of oak to shine. This sensational succulent young spirit offers candied almonds, hints of toffee apple, nougat wafers, banana, ginger biscuits and sherried sponge. It is a tale of two cities. On the nose the floral aromatics were an Islay welcome to a beautiful marriage of ancient ozark oak and young Bslay barley.
Special: Non chill-filtered, no colouring.
