  1. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    https://www.whiskynotes.be/2019/undisclosed/aerolite-lyndsay-10-years/

    Nose: very coastal, with a chalky minerality and iodine, as well as hints of gherkins. Fresh lemons and sour apple juice. Bicycle inner tubes. Notes of sweet paprika powder. Hints of tequila as well. Uncomplicated but quintessential Islay.
    Mouth: very forthcoming again, with medicinal and coastal notes on the one hand (tar, bandages, mercurochrome, as well as kippers and brine) and a light lemon sweetness to balance it. Grapefruits, almond oil, olive juice. Hints of gravel and chalk.
    Finish: medium, fairly dry and ashy. Some minty oak.

    It focuses on heavy coastal notes and briney smoke, mostly shaped by the bourbon wood. Nothing exceptional but a perfect everyday Islay dram. At around € 50, good value for money.

    An anagram of the words ‘ten year old Islay’! A bit of fun and Da Vinci's code in whisky.

    N- Ultra clean distillate, morning sea notes and fresh peat. Ripe acidic tropical fruits, pale, coastal, sweet heather and light. Quietessentials "An Islay For Begginers"...Thanks SMWS~ Developed to camphor, fresh carton box and soft oak, eucalyptus, pine and crushed leaf . (87/21)

    P- An After Eight with sip of dry rum, greeny sweet, chewed raw seaweed, mineral, subtle heat and creamy. Vatted with 5% from mysterious cask, could that be a Jamaican rum cask? (87/21)

    F- Medium, smooth, ginger coat with teasing spiciness. Peat presents itself in gentle manner. Fresh and light, perfect as highball on a stuffy hazy day. (Glad those days are gone) (87/21)

    B/B- 88/22

    Weighted Rate- 85pt

    Aerolite Lyndsay – an anagram of ‘ten-year-old Islay’

    Independent bottler Atom Brands is to launch a new range of Islay whiskies this summer, kicking off with 10-year-old single malt, Aerolite Lyndsay.

    A peated single malt from an unnamed Islay distillery, Aerolite Lyndsay has been matured for at least 10 years in 70% ex-Bourbon barrels, 25% ex-Sherry Spanish oak quarter casks, and 5% ‘mystery’ casks.

    – will launch globally later this summer (2019) for around £44.95 per bottle.
    - bottled at 46% abv
