Islay Mist

What they say:

We think this is one of the best value whiskies for fans of, Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Islay whiskies in general. A really great smoky session dram and a super price.

Nose: Sweet, soft fudge, and all the inherent creaminess, slightly herbal.

Palate: Soft, creamy. Barley.

Finish: Spirity, oak.

What I say:

The history of Islay Mist blended Islay whisky goes back to the Laird of Islay’s (Lord Margadale) 21st birthday party (in the 1920’s) where he was served a special blend to mark  the occasion.  It was so good they started to bottle it commercially.This one played a Cameo role as McCutcheon 60 Years Old during the Water of Life Society (WoLS) meeting 13/02/2014 – Spirit of the movies. The McCutcheon 60 Year Old Scotch Whisky appears to have been invented for the show Lost. Unfortunately the show got a bit weird got cut short a few seasons and basically left all viewers in a state aptly exactly like its title. The McCutcheon 60 seems to be Hollywood’s favourite Prop-Scotch as it here it is again in the TV Series ‘Once upon a time’
