Firkin Islay is an award winning whisky, rated to be among the best! The Isle of Islay lies off the west coast of Scotland and is the home of big, smokey peaty whiskies. The Caol Isla distillery (pronounced Kel-Ila) on the north east tip of the island with majestic sea views, is one of the finest Islay distilleries. 330 Bottles.
Fuse the peaty smokiness of a classic Caol Isla 2012 with the Muscat grape sweetness of Marsala and mature in a hand-built custom cask which uses a combination of American first fill Bourbon & new French Limousin oak staves with a custom char.
This Double Oak cask in combination with the Marsala creates a special flavor profile - the original peat “full on character” is mellowed and softened over time resulting in a new take on a this classic Islay whisky.
In a word, Refined Peat & Smoke another Firkin Original Single Cask Single Malt.
