- Tasting note
Catch a gentle oceanic salt and ozone clean zephyr as the nose opens – with its later tobacco and leather style. Palatewise, anticipate a complex mix of sweet peat, pepper, coal dust, oak wood smoke and a late-on-the-palate chocolatey sweetness. The long subtle finish initially reflects that dulcet, barley quality but still shows a warmingly spiced, tarred and sooted style.
Douglas Laing’s Director of Whisky, Cara Laing, comments: "This final Yula bottling is a stunning example of the care, craft and investment we put into our Whiskies. As we fast approach our 70th year in the industry, we’re well versed at turning out distinctive Whiskies of exceptional quality - this is very much the case with the Yula series. This most recent bottling has aged with a complex backdrop whilst maintaining that archetypal Island character.”
Yula’s third and final chapter is available from specialist Whisky retailers from September 2017. Only 900 bottles of this rare Malt are available globally.
