Fiona Macleod 33 Y Single Malt
The Character of Islay Whisky Company's single malts have a retro feel and an intensely peaty, salty profile. Fiona MacLeod is a single malt made from a blend of carefully selected casks that are at least 33 years old. All the casks come from the same distillery which remains secret, at least until the tasting... The name "Fiona Macleod" pays tribute to the Scottish writer William Sharp who hid his identity under this pseudonym throughout his life.
Another incredible Islay single malt from The Character of Islay Whisky Company, which has been matured for an impressive 33 years! Over three decades of rest for this expression (which was distilled during a time of great uncertainty in the whisky industry) has resulted in a flavour profile packed with mature oak, rich smoke and flashes of lively tropical fruit.
The name Fiona Macleod is a reference to the pen name used by 19th century Scottish writer and poet William Sharp. Rather fitting that it's being used for a whisky from an undisclosed Islay distillery, don't you think?
Ripe tropical fruits with hints of barbecued banana, giving way to smoky vanilla and a pervasive peatiness.
Opens with salty iodine, damp wood smoke and develops into sweet mango and candied ginger. Develops with a briny character, citrus and dried fruits.
Sweet, barley sugar, dried pineapple and bonfires extinguished by ale.
