Elements of Islay Bourbon Cask is part of the new core range trilogy alongside Cask Edit and Sherry Cask. It is matured in first fill and refill Bourbon barrels and is bottled at a higher strength of 54.5% to fully showcase the whisky’s natural personality.
Classic rich barbecue smoke from a South Coast Islay distillery combines with more subtle, zesty flavors from the North Coast.
NOSE: Sweet aromas rise from a sugar jar with vanilla pods. The fragrance of vanilla-and-amber scented candles fills the air, along with fresh tropical fruits. Faint puffs of chimney coal smoke linger.
PALATE: A chocolate-dusted cappuccino, warm vanilla-custard brioche, and maple-syrup-poached tangy fruits appear along with a roaring peat fire. Butter icing on vanilla cupcakes follows next.
FINISH: Sweet, creamy vanilla with a hint of peat smoke.
