Make the Islay pilgrimage – The whiskey’s included in the tasting set are:
Aerolite Lyndsay, a ten-year-old peated single malt from an undisclosed distillery on Islay. Our blenders showcase the best of the liquid by resting it in bourbon barrels and Spanish oak casks. A bold whisky with an independent and complex character, perfect for indulging in with friends, or alone.
Fiona Macleod is a thirty-three-year-old single malt, smooth whisky, sourced from an undisclosed distillery, this is a perfect tribute to the enduring allure of Islay. Distilled in 1985, a time when distilleries on Islay were dramatically reducing production, being mothballed, or lost forever – this bottling heralds Islay’s triumph in the face of adversity. A whisky of profound bright character and charmingly accessible on the nose – the exclusive nature of this whisky only enhances its charm.
Grace Ile, our twenty-five-year-old Islay single malt whisky is matured exclusively in American oak, with a lengthy maturation that has subdued the strong fire smoke flavours. Think smouldering coal rather than wafts of smoke! Grace Ile is a massively fruity dram, with notes of tropical fruits, apple pie, maybe with a burnt crust.
