2010 The Firkin Whisky Co. Firkin Islay Caol Ila 9 Year Old Marsala Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$150. 00 Bottle
Tasting note: A whisky that blends the smokiness of Caol Ila with the Muscat grape of Marsala. Maritime peat, a whisp of iodine and citrus lozenge on the nose, the latter highlighted on the medium bodied palate. The finish is peppery, fresh, lingering with salt-laced peat. Highly accessible Islay, tempered by a subtle sweetness. 48.9% Alc./Vol. 325 bottles. Other reviews... Gold medal in the Whiskies of the World Awards in the peated whiskies category.
