Secret Islay 30 Tasting Notes

Nose: Gentle smouldering smoke, ripe apple accompanies delicate violets, florals and aromatics esters. Gentle and fragrant spices abound including cloves, baked ginger and dark cocoa.

Palate: Tender and mild smoke. Chocolate, followed by an unctuous creamy mouthfeel of violet cremes and honey. Blossom and spiced fruit loaf.

Finish: The rich, smooth and creamy palate dries out on the finish. It reveals a delightful complexity of spices. Soft baked ginger, cinnamon, cloves and citrus oil are all wrapped in a smooth and fragrant smoke. The lightness and complexity linger on the palate long after the whisky has gone and aromatics continue to develop with each sip.

About Rumours Chapter 2

Uncharted name all their whiskies. The name is chosen specially to suit the individual cask. The age, taste, character, rarity and strength all contributing. Sometimes they name themselves. Single cask whisky of an un-named distillery always creates excitement, chatter and speculation. Particularly when the age is so high and the cask so rare. Many whisky lovers love the mystique of a un-named distillery and the challenge of working it out. So here is Rumours, Chapter 2, and the gauntlet is once again thrown down. A rich, floral and esthery Islay. It's beautifully aged with fragrant peat smoke, violets and a complete lack of medicinality.

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.
