A peated single malt from an Islay distillery, aged for 10 years in a mixture of bourbon barrels and Spanish oak sherry quarter casks, which sounds thoroughly delicious.
Aerolite Lyndsay is in fact an anagram of the words ‘ten year old Islay’!
Nose: Lots of maritime peat, with notes of iodine intertwined with honey sweetness, paprika, salted caramel and old bookshelves.
Palate: Smoke returns alongside mint dark chocolate, espresso and new leather, with honey and soy sauce mixed together.
Finish: Boiled mint sweeties, liquorice allsorts, bonfire smoke and toffee penny, with a pinch of salt.
Distillery: Character of Islay
Alcohol by volume: 46%
