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!
