Notes

In celebration of Islay Whisky Festival 2024

About Winter's Green: Our US-exclusive Islay cask presents a gentler smoke with notes of mesquite and smouldering campfire. The telltale fruit richness from this distillery comes through on the finish for a lively and complex sipper. A wonderful starter dram for those Islay-curious whisky lovers!

Tasting Panel Note: A soggy peat bog baked in the summer heat, surrounded by pine trees and a lingering mesquite smoke. The nose was full. The palate didn't disappoint, serving mesquite-smoked brisket, sugar snap peas and brine, with a big wintergreen and thyme burst at the end. Water introduced birch sap, smouldering logs and a herbaceous smoke on the nose. The palate was sweeter now, and lighter in texture.
