Description/ Tasting NotesThose who like it strong, try this medium weight 12 year old, which packs plenty of potent phenols. It is a balanced, peaty beauty, with a compensating oiliness.

Region Info/ Origin
When compared to the various drink producing regions of the world, be it the Grande Champagne designation of Cognac or the first growths of Bordeaux, or that distant island, Madeira, there is something magical about the illustrious Scottish Isle, some 35 miles from the coast of Northern Island. There are some nine distilleries on the Isle.
