(Skye) Isle of Skye 8 year old Whisky 70cl

Isle of Skye 8 year old Whisky Conceived by Ian Macleod whos intention was to develop a blend with the style and character of the robust West Coast malts - but with a softer sea air influence to suit the lighter palate. By careful blending of selected Island and Speyside malts he achieved a subtle balance of Island seaweed and peat, tamed by the elegance of Speyside. His blend was further enhanced by his insistence that the very youngest malt selected for Isle of Skye should have been "Aged 8 Years". Nose: Ripe, fruity and well balanced. Sherry, dried fruits and a hint of smoke. Water brings out a buttery edge. A lot going on. Overall, a little drier than the nose suggests but with excellent, soft, mid-palate weight. Light smoke all the way through. Orange and ginger marmalade. Satisfying. Sustaining. Finish: Ripe and soft. The aromas and flavours evoke breakfast, but in a farmhouse kitchen with an open fire, rused and dashed by the winds down the chimney. Very well balanced. A lovely blend.
