- Premium quality 8 Years Old and 12 years Old Blends – the recognised age of maturity for many malt whiskies.
- Few blends offer any age statement. This is because it defines the age of the youngest whisky in the blend, the majority of the malts in Isle of Skye are much older.
- Origins in that most widely celebrated of Scottish Islands: Skye, home of the Clan Macleod. An exceptionally smooth and mellow Scotch whisky containing a high proportion of carefully selected Island and Speyside Malts.
Isle of Skye 8 yr old
Palate: Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice.
Finish: Massively flavored. This creaminess continues for what seems hours. Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty. The oak returns at the end.
