The Single Cask Islay Malt 8YO 2009 #OCT001

Un chill filtered, 54.4% abv, 75 bottles, Cask Ref OCT001

Nose: A rich and complex series of aromas, dominated by sweet coffee flavours and earthy hints of juniper & brine.

Palate: At full strength sherry notes dominate the palate, at first sweet but then the Islay character coming through; charred meats 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, the peat still aggressive with notes reminiscent of burnt rubber, brandy and sticky toffee pudding.
