To compose this whisky, we have chosen some gorgeous casks of Islay malt whisky from two of the island's most famous distilleries, complementing them with whisky distilled at Ardmore on Speyside and approximately 2% northern Highland malt whisky aged using new French oak. The result is an intense and multi-faceted peet-reek character with profound complexity. Made from just a few humble ingredients-barley dried over peat smoke, water and yeast-you will find few other drinks in the world with such complexity. In this, the whiskymaker's union of earth and water.. 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.Reviewed by: John Hansell (Summer 2010). 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.WoodPrimarily 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.. 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.. A fantastic late-night digestif malt whisky. The magnum bottle makes it appropriate for parties Liquor
