Islay whiskies are in high demand as more Scotch drinkers look for unique and distinct flavors. And nowhere in Scotland do you find more pronounced flavors than in Islay, home to AD Rattray Cask Islay. This cask strength, un-chill-filtered beast advances to the nose at once aggressive and gentle with its aromas of peat, smoke, seaweed and iodine, virtually transporting the imbiber to the very shores of Islay. It gains a second wind on the palate where it resonates with the classic flavors of the region, before it finishes with a sweet, hot, spicy, peated smokiness.

Price: $60
