Product details

Tasting note

  • Nose : Dusty dark chocolate, charcoal smoke and buttered currants. Winter-punch spice is balanced by fresher, greener notes of nettle and elderflower.
  • Palate : Mouth coating and dense, with rich Morello cherries in a thick sweet sauce – the perfect balance of sweet and sour. The peat is herbaceous, reminiscent of aged chartreuse, and is followed by notes of bitter chocolate.
  • Overall : Cocoa nibs and Arbroath smokies linger.

Merchant

A wine merchant recently founded by the Singh brothers, the owners of The Whisky Exchange in the United Kingdom, Speciality Drinks offers three ranges of very different single malts. The first, Port Askaig, is composed of four bottlings of an Islay single malt, including an expression with no age statement and a 30 year old! The second, Elements of Islay, celebrates the different distilleries on the island, each easily identified by their initials. The third, simply dubbed Speciality Drinks, offers a wide selection of single malts from Scottish distilleries.

The line

Taking its inspiration from the Periodic Table of elements, the British company Speciality Drinks created Elements of Islay, an exclusive range of single malts from the isle of Islay, bottled unchillfiltered at cask strength. Sourced from all of the island’s distilleries, these bottlings focus on the basic “elements” such as peat, iodine and tar resulting in some powerful whiskies with plenty of character!
