Colour - Brilliant luminous clover honey
Body Medium & satiny smooth due to non chill filtration. The natural oils from the oak & the barley give a mouthfeel that is both smooth and succulent.
Nose & Palate Opens on newly cut barley fresh from the field, followed by a hint of lemon grass & coastal flowers, sea pinks, clover and Marigold. Then the mellow nuttiness of the oak drifts in with just a hint of the bourbon spicy notes you always find in a cask filled with malt whisky for the first time and it works brilliantly with unpeated Brookie. On the palate it’s the flavour of toasted barley that takes the spotlight with its biscuity sweetness and hints of vanilla throughout.
Soaked by the Atlantic storms and warmed by the Gulf stream winds, the nature; cooling environment of Islay plays a huge part on the flavours you have on your palate.
It’s a spirit in its prime. All the flavours are in a Hebridean halo. Matured by the edge of the Atlantic Ocean it could have no better DNA. It’s pure Islay from the barley to the bottle. No man could ask for more.
