Fèis Ìle 2022: 1998 Calvados Cask Finish
Distilled on the 28th of October 1998, this exceptional limited edition whisky spent just over 20 years maturing peacefully in our coastal warehouses on the shores of the Sound of Islay. On the 11th of November 2019, it was then transferred into casks that once held sweet and fruity French Calvados Brandy to finish for almost two years.
Bottled at 49.7% abv, non-chillfiltered and with natural colour, this festival release is truly something to savour.
Barley sugar, pear drops, toffee apples. Followed by a burst of dates and a floral top note like conifer trees.
Sweet and fruity, lots of green apple and pear candies. Some signature cereal, oily notes of Bunnahabhain and more toffee mixed with dried fruits.
Spicy powerful then floral on the palate.
