Yula 21 Year
Yula // Scotland
Yula 21 is the following expression of the already appraised Yula 20 from Douglas Laing. Part of a trilogy, this blended malt from Islay and Islands barrels is named after the Norse goddess Yula, said to have created the island of Islay. This limited edition of 900 bottles is a year older than his brother, from the same barrels so you get to enjoy the additional year of maturation. Note: Not available in the US.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Fresh lemons next to a beach fire is what describes the best the nose. The longer you sample it, the more complex it gets with orange peels, a whiff of smoke and peat, warm spices and creamy malt. Medicinal notes and toffee increase over time. The palate is very smooth, with lots of wood influence (vanilla and honey) and spices (cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and pepper). A soft sea breeze comes along with brine and peat. Delightful. The finish is long and warm, very comforting with burnt oak and hints of peat and mint."
