On the nose, earthy smoky peat and salty ocean Breeze. Flavours of pungent peat smoke, chewy sweet malt, pepper, tar and a touch of iodine. Long and warming finish with smoky ashes of the peat fire.
For centuries the stormy waters of the Atlantic Ocean has not only shaped the character of the people of Islay but also the character of their famous whiskies. In many ways this fine malt mirrors the character of Islay people – strong yet gentle, warm yet mellow, but with a maturity beyond its years. Robust peaty, with that unmistakable breath of the seashore, The Ileach is “a true man from Islay”.
