Islay Barley 2010 (6 year old) 50%

Age: Under 10yrs
ABV: 50
Bottle size: 70
In stock

Tasted: Apr 2018
Aromas of earthy barley and hints of apple, honeysuckle and coffee-malt. A subtle floral note emerges but it appears that the emphasis is on the earthy tones. Late hints of sweet honey, vanilla and oily spirit notes.

The palate opens with the earthy barley, coffee, malt and hints of apple and apricot. The middle is a little on the dry side but overall the balance is good, although the alcohol masks the finish a little. Subtle, lingering honey, barley and salt.

A drop of water makes the nose more floral and honeyed with hints of Alsace-like white fruit and barley. The palate is now unshackled! Sweeter and more honeyed, generous and juicy with barley, honeysuckle and subtle vanilla. Now it is more classic Laddie. Slightly dry, dusty spice after-taste.
