The malts of Islay (pronounced "eye-luh"), a remote island off the west coast of Scotland, are certainly the most pungent, powerful and idiosyncratic of all malt whiskies.
They are cherished amongst blenders and as such, a small proportion of Islay malt will find its way into almost every blend that appears on the market. It is their intensity of flavour and their robust peaty, seaweedy profile that provides so many whiskies with the richness and unique character that seperates Scotch from whiskies produced anywhere else in the world. Some of Islay’s greatest exponents include Ardbeg,Lagavulin, Bowmore and last but not least, Laphroaig – the most famous of all the Islay malts. And of the many Single Malts and other fine aged whiskies which comprise Islay Mist, it is Laphroaig that makes the most distinctive contribution to this characterful blend.
The red seal (pictured right) which features on the label is a pre-heraldic device known as the Filii Doanaldi (sons of Donald.) Evolved in 1156 it marks the victory of the little ships of Somerled (King of Argyll & the Isles) and his three sons Dughall, Ragnal & Angus, over the long ships of the Norsemen. This is the oldest emblem of the clan Donald of Islay.
Tasting Notes: Bright gold colour with pale gold hue. There is some viscosity evident. The nose is at once Islay, but moreso Laphroaig, revealing volatile odours of rich peat, iodine and umani (seaweed). The palate continues the aroma profile with a burst of peat bog over a sweet malty background. Slightly oily texture. Aftertaste of ethanol, peat and smokey malt. A simpler, softer Islay style, but still with plenty of character and weight and the perfect accompaniment to Japanese food.
