For many Single Malts lovers, Islay rhymes with peaty and smoky.

The Treasure Island

The most western island of Scotland (the Hebrides not included) is not very attractive, with its pebbly hills less than 500 meters high and its windswept peat bogs. But Islay is a true paradise for whisky aficionados, as it boasts the most impressive malts of Scotland. The island has many reasons why whisky production is so vibrant. Its rich soil produces the barley needed for the distillation process, water flows from the sky, the wetlands used to provide the main combustible material and cover almost a quarter of the island.

For many Single Malts lovers, Islay rhymes with peaty and smoky. This is what offers the new Ian MacLeod expression, “Smokehead”, addressed to young, hype customers looking for the stylish, original spirits… 

Colour: gold with golden hues.

Or, avec des nuances dorées.

Nose:  intensely smoky with minty flavours, ginger, cream and bananas aromas. 

Palate: slightly salty with a light clover taste. Slowly, vanilla and cocoa appear on  a perfectly balanced body with a sweet, oily taste in the palate.

Finish:  quite long and flavoursome. The smoky flavours matches perfectly the chocolate and kiwi flavours.
