Elements of Islay, Peat, Full Proof (500ml)
Elements of Islay - PEAT Full Proof
"PEAT" is the first release from Elixir Distillers, using whiskies from the Scottish island of Islay.
With an ABV of 59.3%, PEAT Full Proof is ideal for classic whisky cocktails that demand full flavours.
Fresh, sprightly barley entwined with peat smoke and bonfire embers. Bracing aromas of salty seaweed and seashells. Plenty of clean fruit – lemon, lime and grapefruit, while hiding underneath are notes of rich earth and liquorice.
Warm and leathery with thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple and lime with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of smoke and dark-chocolate limes envelope the palate and are intertwined with softer lemon oil and barbecue sauce, with hints of roasted spices and barrel char, complementing the peat and smoke.
Sea spray and baked apple fade leaving heavier smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.
A full-throttle Islay dram.
