"Barley varieties Optic and Oxbridge were planted across the breadth of the island in 2009; gathering the harvests together was to result in this first 'regional Islay release' - the fifth in the Islay Barley series.

We distilled their spirit early in 2010 and it ran clean, rich and malty, before being filled into ex-Bourbon and French wine casks and matured in our warehouses by Loch Indaal.

Tasting Note

Nose: The promised sea breeze is unmistakable, white pepper spice tingles and smooth vanilla and toffee present cautiously.

Palate: Full and rich buttery goodness facilitates a sharp, malty brown sugar and creamy vanilla custard. A slight oiliness soothes emerging spice.

Finish: Crisp, summery berries meld with ripe apple and settle with fresh citrus notes that calm the rich palate.
