Cask Islay Bourbon Edition - Cask Strength
A D Rattray has done it again - this special edition of their Cask Islay is fully matured in 1st-fill Kentucky bourbon barrels and bottled at cask strength, to preserve the rich, full-bodied mouthfeel and intense, rounded flavours.
- Nose: Salted peanut, crab skewer, torched meringue and a bracing Islay breeze.
- Palate: Smoked almond brittle, pink grapefruit and sweet maple.
- Finish: Seared prawn and subtle balsamic cut effortlessly through the smoke.
A.D. Rattray independent bottlers
A. D. Rattray are independent whisky bottlers established in 1868. In the last quarter of the 19th century the company represented various established Whisky distilleries and distributed their whiskies all over the West of Scotland. The business was sold in the late 1920's to whisky brokers William Walker and Co. It wasn't until 2002 that a fourth generation descendant of Andrew Dewar Rattray, Tim Morrison, released a new Stronachie whisky. Two years later the fabulous single cask range was introduced. These days the company's portfolio includes Stronachie and Cask Islay single malt whiskeis and the Bank Note blended whisky.
