This 33-year-old whisky, distilled by the coast of Islay, has been finished in Cognac casks to enhance its floral bouquet with citrus and herbal notes. Scattered with violet petals, mint and lavender, this is Islay like you’ve never seen her before. Journey past rough seas, rocky shores and windswept hills to find a treasure trove of wildflower fields – an Isle of Violets.
Nose -Intensely floral, with Parma Violet drops and jasmine. Clean notes of furniture polish, lemon peel and laundry drying on the breeze contrast with the smoky character of burning sage.
Palate - An alpine garden in the summer. Soft violet petals mingle with woody and resinous notes of juniper, pine and rosemary. Champagne cocktails with pink grapefruit juice and rose syrup are served in the afternoon sunshine.
Finish - Fresh vegetal notes of dried mint, eucalyptus, rosemary and coriander leaf are sweetened by lavender perfume and candied fennel seed.
