    ABOUT THE WHISKY
    Distilled at Islay's Caol Ila and matured in a single cask for a decade, this 10 Year Old single malt has a fresh and smoky character, with sharp citrus notes.

    Tasting Notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    NOSE
    Fresh and smoky – beach bonfires burn as waves crash around you. Sweet smoke and rock pools are joined by singed lemons and yellow wine guns. Hints of tarry rope hide in the back.

    PALATE
    Richer than expected, and packed with fruit. Lemons, limes and tangerines are joined by a big hint of warming spice and lashings of mineral-infused smoke. Tarry liquorice sits at the back and salt and pepper is sprinkled on top.

    FINISH
    A flash of sea spray leads to barbecued apples and black pepper.

    COMMENT
    A fresh, maritime whisky with a youthful punchiness, packed full of sweet smoke, zesty fruit and seaside charm.
