The nose is filled with rich peat, brine, slight seaweed and ocean spray, with soft tropical fruits and heather.The palette is lovely with rich fruits, oily texture, chewy toffee, peat, smoke, cocoa and oak spice to the back end. A long dry finish of tea leaf and mint chocolate. D&M Tasting Notes
This Islay Blend is a "teaspoon" of some of our favorite Islay malts. Distilleries use this method to keep independent bottlers from using the term Single Malt.

For many years, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd. has experimented in the use of differing cask sizes for the maturation of Single Malt and Single Grain Scotch whiskies. The research stemmed from a simple premise that there is more interaction between the wood and the spirit over a shorter period of time in a small cask than in a large cask, therefore allowing a more rapid “melding” of wood, air and alcohol.
