Whiskies of Scotland Blended Islay Malt Whisky - 1997

Item # 31909 750mL

Pining for a some pure Islay whisky? We know; once you get a taste for that distinctive smoky, sweet, salty flavor that is what this island is all about there is no turning back. Notes include fiery peat smoke, linseed, wafts of sea air, preserved citrus peels, freshly turned earth, dried grass, roasted malt, salt water taffy, and more. The whisky just keeps developing in the glass and seems to unveil new layers every time you come back to it. Made by exclusively blending select single malt casks from the legendary distilleries of Islay, this is like getting the equivalent release from any of those famous names, all in one bottle, for a tiny fraction of the price.
