Taste of Islay

$71.99Join to get discount

If you like your whisky smoky, peaty…and more smoky, this Taste of Islay trio is the pack for you. The Islay island off Scotland’s west coast currently has nine working distilleries producing a range of one-of-a-kind whiskies. The water on Islay is said to be very soft, which makes it ideal for producing whisky because it doesn’t strip out flavor from the barley as much as other types of water would. Additionally, peat moss is used to smoke the barley which gives Islay whiskies their signature smokiness.

 

This collection of Islay whisky’s the community loves will transport you across the pond. Try each and compare to learn more about the nuances between them. Contribute your own tasting notes to the community, and help us continue to shape these bottle’s taste profiles.
