Jim McEwan Tasting Notes:
Aromas - Beautiful oak, peat & hints of Atlantic swells leading onto Coastal Flora & Fauna. It has a true Hebridean DNA that works beautifully with the spice from the Bourbon that first filled the cask. Little hints of Jupiter & Pine drift by on a classic Islay marine overture all held in the warmth of a peat fire.
Palate - The texture of the spirit is beautiful, viscous, mellow and brimming with all that
makes Islay malts so unique. Flavours of melon & pear emerge held beautifully by the oak & peat smoke, the crisp sweetness of the malt works well with the oak which delivers a beautiful spicy drift as the oak expands releasing gentle hints of bourbon spices. This spirit is at its very best. The finish is long and mellow, a true son of Islay!!
