Morrison & Mackay
The Big Strand Single Islay Malt 46%

Age: No Age Statement
ABV: 46
Bottle size: 70
In stock

Named after the longest mostly uninterrupted sandy beach on Islay. With a total length of 7 miles, it stretches from Laggan Point in the north to Kintra and the Oa Peninsula in the south.
Tasted: Oct 2016
Aromas of fresh, crisp, salty, old skool Caol Ila with briny white fruit, grass and lovely sweet barley. Moderately peated and lightly phenolic with hints of wort and the mashtun.

The palate is fresh and crisp with a touch of digestive biscuit, white fruit and subtly phenolic, briny peat. Pleasant balance of fruit and crisp saltiness. Long, bracing and probably just like walking on the beach! However the fruit lingers and it exits with some pleasant, fragrant peat smoke.
