Someone’s been behind the wheel of the Delorean here. Either that or they have put something very interesting together.
Isle of Skye
21 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Do we have a time traveller in our midst? This reminds me of old White Horse from the early 80s; slightly bitter caramel, but tempered with a lovely waft of floral smoke and vanilla custard tarts \nwith nutmeg. \n
Palate: Another nutty one: hazelnuts, some salted peanut notes, cream soda, caramel and fresh butter. \n
Finish: A little short, but sweet nonetheless.\n
Comment: Someone’s been behind the wheel of the Delorean here. Either that or they have put something very interesting together.
Nose: Gritty wood spices and no shortage of tannins, malt, barley and balancing creamy oak. The aromas are showing some maturity with an almost Armagnac-esque character and with time some lovely, dusty coffee notes.
Palate: A lovely melange of juicy barley, honey and light oxidation notes. Again the oak is mature and dusty with a touch of coffee and herbs. Seriously deep with a developing minerality.
Finish: Long and very stony with lingering herbal notes.
Comment: A beautiful, mature whisky.
