About GreatDrams Islay 7 Year Old
This is GreatDrams' second batch of their award winning Islay whisky. Batch 01 won two awards from the International Spirits Challenge and London Spirits Competition. So they had to repeat this release! They've sourced this cask from the very same distillery and month of distillation.
From the mystical island of Islay, and matured in First Fill Bourbon Barrel this is beautifully balanced. It has the classic Islay peated whisky notes. As well as soothing vanilla and soft, subtle fruit notes along with a welcoming chocolate too. In whisky, the ‘peaty’ note is more potent at a younger age as the spirit’s influence is greater than the cask’s influence. Hence why GreatDrams bottled this one at 7 years old – for the peat power!

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
