Nose: Initial aromas as of profound smokiness, followed by sweet fresh fruit such as apples and bananas, and malt characteristics; developing into rich dried fruit (raisins, figs, cinnamon) and spicy complexity.
Palate: Powerful, complex and rich, yet exceptionally smooth.
Finish: Rich, mouth-warming and lingering peaty finish.
This exquisite spirit is handcrafted from rare whiskies produced only in distilleries that operated during the reign of King George V, including several which no longer exists, such as the Port Ellen distillery. The prized Port Ellen malt represents a lost generation of Islay Whiskies with a peatiness and fundamentally profound, complex nature that cannot be found anywhere else.
