Green Isle, 40%Abv

Appearance – Gold coloured in the glass, medium running, thickish legs.

Nose – Very light peat, Earthy, Lemon oil, Icing sugar, Pencil shavings, the top of a Bakewell tart, slightly medicinal, white pepper.

PALATE – More peat than the nose suggested, BBQ sauce, Bonfire Ash, Pear drops, Vegetal, Sweet peat, Iodine, Salinity, Pear, Cinnamon, Apple pie, Seared Pineapple.

Finish – Medium to long, with White pepper, Light oak and Ginger.

My thoughts – This is a lovely Blended Whisky, plenty going on flavour wise, but not a peat bomb, a great introduction to Islay peat.

Would I buy a bottle? – Yes, it’s a lot of flavour for the price.

Thanks to – The character of Islay Whisky Company.
