Elements of Islay "Peat" Full Proof is a Blended Islay Malt Whisky from Elixir Distillers. Peat Full Proof is the perfect expression of smoky whisky, with all the full-on coastal character you would expect from an island whisky, as well as balanced sweetness and all this at cask strength. This blend uses whisky from a handful of distilleries across the island to create an Islay blended malt with full-on peat, smoke, and fruit. Natural Colour, Non Chill Filtered, 50cl at 59.3% alc./vol
Note: This is a 50cl bottle.
Fresh, sprightly barley entwined with peat smoke and bonfire embers. Bracing aromas of salty seaweed and seashells. Plenty of clean fruit – lemon, lime and grapefruit – while hiding underneath are notes of rich earth and liquorice.
Warm and leathery with thick-cut bacon, seashore campfires and roasted fruit: sweet apple and lime with a sprinkle of caster sugar. Layers of smoke and dark-chocolate limes envelope the palate and are intertwined with softer lemon oil and barbecue sauce, with hints of roasted spices and barrel char, complementing the peat and smoke.
Sea spray and baked apple fade leaving heavier smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.
