The signature 8 Year Old famously referred to as a ‘superstar whisky that gives us all reason to live’, by Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible, Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky really is the stuff of dreams.
Produced using distinctive Island and mellow Speyside malts, Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky is blended using a unique recipe of the finest malt and grain whiskies.
Nose: Stunningly evocative. Deep peaty tones waft from the glass, like the reek from a crofter’s lum. But there is a lot more beyond: the grains intermingle deliciously with oaky, vanilla notes and something malty and even slightly honeyed. The stuff of dreams.
Palate: Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice. Massively flavoured. This creaminess continues for what seems hours.
Finish: Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty.
The oak returns at the end.
