"A whisky to fall in love with.
On the nose you can feel dry peat, behind which various fruit notes play a symphony.
The palate shows a liqueur sweetness, which is perfectly balanced by the salty, maritime character. The fruit notes are dominated by the gooseberry, but you could spend an evening defining each fruit. In the background comes and goes the lightest perfume note, which tends to hide behind the gooseberry note.
The highlight of this whisky is the finish, because it stays and stays.
This whisky is a step in the evolution of the distillery. The liqueur fruity notes are reminiscent of their past; the lightest perfume note is reminiscent of the 80s, and the gooseberry is typical of the modern profile of the distillery.
The Islay is a great example that distilleries can produce beautiful whiskys even in their toughest years.
As with most C.Dully bottlings, we recommend giving this whisky as much air as possible. Especially after opening a new bottle, the perfume notes are increasing. With time and enough air, however, these decrease extremely and let the beautiful gooseberry and peat notes come to the fore. "
