Origine 10-Year-Old Islay Malt Scotch Whisky

Best Buy

A composed Islay bouquet with scents of grain mash, new leather, seaweed, sea air and peat. The palate entry is first astringent, smoky and briny and then semisweet and malty; the midpalate stage is moderately oily, oaky sweet, and tobacco- and cocoa-like. Finishes gracefully, focusing on the natural smokiness of Islay malts. Well done. Best Buy. P.P.
