ISLAY STORM SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
The single malt whisky from Scotland captures all the mysteries on and around the island of Islay in a single bottle. The distillery’s location on the west coast exposes it and the whisky to the extreme storms and influences of the Atlantic Ocean. This can also be perceived in the whisky.
The Islay Storm Single Malt is bottled by the independent bottler C.S. James & Sons. It is made from an unnamed Islay single malt, which reflects the typical smoky characteristics of the island. This is joined by maritime salt notes and a sweet, phenolic note. The Islay Storm Single Malt is bottled at 40.0% vol.
Colour: In the glass, the whisky appears light gold.
Nose: The smell is reminiscent of vanilla, sweet peat smoke, ginger and citrus notes. It is accompanied by a slight hint of iodine.
Taste: The palate has a strong taste of dry smoke with spicy sweetness. Alongside this, notes of sweet peat, ginger, lemon and honey can be detected. The texture is slightly oily.
Aftertaste: The finish is long and rather dry. Spicy oils and smoke emerge some time later.
