The standard bearer of Islay whisky, the sparkling gold colour and huge smoky notes let you know you are in for a treat.

There is a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness on your way to a long and strong finish.
A mix of malt and grain whiskies from the Highland and Speyside regions yields a fresh apple scent accented by a touch of vanilla. On the palate, this is smooth, light and easy-sipping, leading with vanilla and caramel, plus gentle peat smoke floating into a baking spice finish. Sip or mix. Best Buy.
Full bodied and robust, you will notice lingering wood cinders of tar and smoke, with just a trace of vanilla and a subtle citrus note on the nose. The smokey nature of burnt oak chips is apparent as you enjoy a malty vanilla flavour, bringing balance to the overall taste. As you might expect, the finish is smoky and strong, with just a hint of iodine.
