Isle of Skye 8 Year
Isle of Skye // Scotland
The Isle of Skye is a blended whisky brand named in honor of the clan of its founder, Ian Macleod, whence they hail. They source whisky from the Speyside and the Islands to create the blend, which includes malt from Talisker. The whisky is aged for a minimum of 8 years in used American barrels.
Peated BlendA mix of grains and malted barley. From more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"The nose is rather intense from the get go with sweet maple, vanilla, and a mild suggestion of peat smoke. The whisky opens up on the palate and feels moderately full with a good amount of malt whisky in the blend. The peat smoke and sea salt make a more grandiose appearance towards the end. The whisky shows a fair amount of value for the money."
