We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of our 100% Islay 3rd Edition. This is the latest edition of the 100% Islay range which is produced from barley grown, malted, distilled and bottled at the distillery. This release has had a longer maturation compared to the 2nd Edition and is a vatting of four and five year old fresh bourbon barrels.

With a delicate and floral nose of soft fruits and pear drops, 100% Islay goes on with peat smoke in the mouth, complimented by a long, sweet and lingering finish that blends with the softer tones of peat smoke.
