Islay, Scotland - A fantastic, southeast Islay expression rich in smoke, peat, seaweed but delightfully balanced with honey and vanilla from 14 years in wood. A sea spray cut with nut toffee and honeyed, smoky malt. Wonderful to the core. Wine Enthusiast - Top 100 Spirits for 2017.

Scotch, quite simply, is whisky made and aged at least three years in Scotland. All whisky made in Scotland is Scotch, and must follow specific production regulations.
All Scotch varieties fall within two broad categories or are blends of these two: malt whisky and grain whisky. Malt whisky must be 100 percent malted barley. Grain whisky may include wheat, rye, corn or other grains.
