The Six Isles Pure Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl 43°
Scotland has some 140 populated islands, within which only 6 produce Single Malt whisky today: Islay (peated and iodized whisky), Jura, Skye (spicy, peppery whisky), Mull (salted and iodized whisky), Orkney (with rich, distinctive notes) and Arran.
The Six Isles is the very first Pure Malt whisky combining the best malts from carefully selected casks, coming from distilleries located on the six whisky producing islands. This expression has been crafted by the Ian Macleod Distillers Limited team.
All the vivid character of these islands can be found in this dram, from peaty and smoky notes of Islay, softened by floral aromas of heather and sweet hints of honeyed iodine picked on Orkney Islands, to the other very characterful and flavoursome presence of the four other Isles. It is a journey of the senses through the best Island Scotch whiskies.
This is quite a sophisticated blend, with a very maritime nose, lifted by peaty, smoky and iodine notes. In the backdrop, lovely floral and fruity flavours of grapefruit and lemon lift the overall spirit and then evolves on vanilla flavours. The mouthfeel is rather dry, a dash of water unleashes a world of aromas.
The Six Isles Pure Malt whisky is a bewitching blend that will delight the experts.
