Whisky Reviews for Breath of Islay 1992 AD

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 278 bottles from cask 5348

    This edition of our now famous ‘Breath of Islay’ comes from a refill hoggie, like previous editions. The colour is mid gold; the beading mild. Not so obviously smoky as former casks: more medicinal (antiseptic cream, Elastoplast), although with resinous sap from a smouldering log, and sweet, tablet-like notes. In the mouth, it is sweeter than expected, with clean, medicinal flavours. Water continues the ‘doctor’s surgery’ imagery; perhaps an old-fashioned medicine cupboard or a freshly spread plaster-cast – clean and fresh and very Islay. The taste is still very sweet, with a thick mouthfeel, gherkins in vinegar, charcoal sticks and lingering smoke in the finish. As sophisticated as ever, with an added sweetness and complexity.
