    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 245 bottles from cask no. 1792

    The last in the current Breath of the Isles 1995 series, this is a cracker! A warm golden colour, with good beading, plenty of smoke on the nose. This is accompanied by allspice, ripe red apples and fresh oranges. Then comes the pepper and licorice with a little marzipan and burnt caramel followed by decadent, spun honey. The taste brings even more licorice, some cloves, salt and a good dose of chilli pepper. At reduced strength, vanilla is present with plenty of maritime influences – mussels and salty rock pools. The finish is exceptionally long for a whisky of this age with sphagnum moss, bath salts and spicy pepper all wrapped up in a delightful sweetness. A truly grown-up Island whisky.
