Black Bottle – Island Smoke Edition

This blend is bottled by Gordon Graham & Co Ltd Glasgow. It is part of the Alchemy Series along with Double Cask Black Bottle.

Early in 2021, the Alchemy Series was born, two Whiskies. Going by its name this is quite a smoky dram.

The Island Smoke Edition is a fabulous blend, if you like Islay Whiskies especially Ardbeg’s 5 Year Old Wee Beastie then you will love this blend.

This blend is part of a family of four from Gordon Graham & Co.

Black Bottle Blended Scotch Whisky – Island Smoke, 46.3% Alc/vol 70 cl 

Colour…Buttered popcorn

NoseAn enticing combination of sweet peat smoke, a light medicinal note, and a whiff of seaside air.

TasteBalanced peat, sweet and smooth, vanilla, scorched stave, damp wood on a bonfire, sea saltiness, caramel.

FinishLong and delightful, sweet peat is in charge but along comes some peppery spice leaving a little heat. 

Loved this one. I am going to ensure that my cabinet has both Alchemy Bottlings in it at all times. Priced at £25.00  you just cannot go wrong.

A wee note on the Double Cask, it has malts finished in sherry casks together with grain Whisky aged in red wine casks ensuring a heavy red wine nose and palate.
