Review door Elements of Islay

Geur

Initially the whisky is quite shy, revealing hints of sweetness, but after a short time in the glass it roars into life. Layers of wood smoke, tar and peat appear with sweet spice and singed lemons.

Smaak

Sweet and honeyed to start, with oatcakes and melon, but then the smoke appears again: coal, beach bonfires, black pepper, black cardamom and rich earth. Water softens the smoke and reveals a core of brown-sugar sweetness.

Afdronk

Waves of smoke.

Notitie

Famed for making pungently medicinal whisky, this south-coast distillery is far from a one-trick pony. It’s not all about iodine, and for Lp1 we carefully married a handful of casks from a single late-1990s vintage to focus on different types of smokiness.
