Secret Islay 14 Year Old Tasting Notes

Official tasting notes

Nose: At first rich and mellow seaside smoke and smoky bacon ascend out the glass. More delicate lemon drizzle cake and oak emerge a little later on. 

Palate: Lemon oil coats the mouth mingling beautifully with the smoke mellowed by the years. Fresh baking aromatics accompany crisp fragrances. A touch of water brings freshly cracker pepper to life.

Finish: In contrast to many whiskies, the finish exposes a rich earthiness that builds with time rather than fades. Long and smoky with touches of pepper and savoury baking.

Ed's review

Colour: Pale gold, straw. Thick and viscous in the glass with pronounced legs.

Nose: A bonfire on the beach with pebble minerality and a touch of seaweed. Tarte au citron with buttery pastry, lemon citrus, and vanilla.

Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel. Pastries with lemon and vanilla cream, seasoned with sea salt. Smoke from earthy peat burning on mineral rocks. Alcohol is well integrated.

Finish: Long. Earthy peat smoke dances with the lemon citrus and fades into bright spice.

Overall: Wonderful, absolutely delicious, bound to delight Islay fans.

About Rumours Chapter 3

This is the finale of Uncharted’s hugely popular Rumours series. It is the third of three exceptional casks, all from the salty shores of Islay, all cask strength and all enigmatically un-disclosed distilleries of origin. Each bottle has been lovingly bottled by Jack and Dana’s hand, hand labelled and individually numbered. Throughout this their Rumours series, Jack and Dana have not been able to name any of the Islay distilleries on the labels, but they have always been able to hint… maybe even started a Rumour or three?

Check out the clues below for Chapter 3 and remember it’s one of the 10 Islay distilleries and can't be named…
