The Single Cask Islay Malt 8YO 2009 #OCT002

Un chill filtered, 55.9% abv, 75 bottles, Cask Ref OCT002

Nose: Sweet coffee flavours, raisins, peat and earthy hints of juniper & brine.

Palate: Sherry notes dominate the palate, at first sweet but then the Islay character coming through; dark chocolate, cloves and rich stewed fruits fight their way to the forefront. Oily and full-bodied, without the prickle that might be expected at cask strength.

Finish: The finish is surprisingly long, with peat, cloves, oak, sherry and dark chocolate shavings bringing things to a close.
