One of Scotland’s oldest whisky brands, Black Bottle was originally created back in 1879. Its flavour profile has changed a few times over the years, and it was originally made from Speyside whiskies, with a small proportion of lightly-peated liquid in there, too. It then changed to an Islay-forward blend, with strong smoky flavours becoming associated with the name.
In 2013, it was decided that the blend should resemble something closer to the original, lighter flavour profile – which caused quite a stir with peat fans. The Alchemy Series was unveiled in early 2021, with this Island Smoke edition harking back to the days of the strong, peaty flavours. A blend of peated malt and unpeated grain whiskies, 20 components make up Island Smoke, with a blended malt from 1984 said to be at its core.
Burnt brown sugar and earthy smoke, followed by nutmeg and salted caramel.
Porridge drizzled with caramel, balanced by savoury sea air, cinnamon, and chilli chocolate.
Rock salt and beach bonfire smokiness linger.
