Product Description

Isle of Skye 8 Year Old is a blend of Island and Speyside whiskies from Ian Macleod and Sons of Edinburgh. Mellowed in oak casks for 8 years and bottled at 43.0%ABV

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Stunningly evocative. Deep peaty tones waft from the glass, like the reek from a crofter’s lum. But there is a lot more beyond: the grains intermingle deliciously with oaky, vanilla notes and something malty and even slightly honeyed. The stuff of dreams.


Palate: Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice.


 Massively flavored. This creaminess continues for what seems hours. Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty. The oak returns at the end.
