Made by Ian Macleod Distillers (owners of Glengoyne and Tamdhu), the Six Isles is a combination of whisky from Scotlandís six whisky producing islands: Islay; Jura; Orkney; Sky; Mull; and Arran. This is a soft peaty whisky with coastal overtones.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Immediately coastal with milk pudding and liquorice. Chardonnay. Caroway seed, bitter lemon, pine resin, salty peat, chlorine. Lightly floral.
Palate: Several degrees of lemon. Part sweet, part bitter. Lemony, salty peat. Vibrant oak making a surge late on, as does a lovely thin seam of vanilla.
Retails for around £30
