  1. Brinker scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      82 82
      Peaty, but nothing wild. Medicinal, salty. A bit of acetone.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Again, peaty and medicinal - matching the nose well. Nice balance.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long. Earthy, mossy. Vanilla. Peat is the last thing left.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 299 bottles from cask 3201

    The second release of our Breath of the Isles label. Once again, this is from an “unnamable” distillery situated on one of Scotland’s Western Isles (the owners prefer that we do not name it for marketing reasons…) From an American oak hoggy, this is pale gold in colour. Excellent beading – the size and duration of the bubbles created from shaking the bottle – this suggests a thick texture. A strong, peppery nose with hints of sphagnum moss, fragrant smoke and dry spice. The addition of water brings out more moss, but this time fresh like an open moor in a strong north-westerly gale, distant smoke and a lovely sweetness. The flavour is very complex, with long flavours, a good dose of smoke and the tell-tale kick of pepper in the finish. A vivid dram.
