Three young, feisty Islay malts matured in three different types of casks – sherry butt, wine barrique and bourbon barrel. This is a vatting of equal parts of Laphroaig, Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain. The first two give a big, smoky, heavy peatiness, whilst the non-peated Bunnahabhain, matured in a sherry butt, adds a smoothness and depth to create a well-balanced blend.
Nose: stewed fruits, embers
Palate: fruity oak, bonfire smoke, oily
Finish: long, lingering peat
This is an example of great teamwork – the coming together of three different Islay whiskies matured in three different types of casks. Slàinte!
