THE ISLAY BOYS LTD. SCOTCH WHISKY
FLATNÖSE BLENDED MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
'BORN OF ADVENTURE'
Flatnöse Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is an all-malt Scotch whisky, with a good share of traditional peated Islay single malts, giving a reach peaty touch. The smokiness is balanced by hints of honey and candied fruit, and it is bottled at a higher strength of 46% vol. Like the very best Scotch whiskies, it is unchill-filtered for much greater mouth-feel and persistence. Silver "outstanding" award winner at the IWSC 2017, bottled in small batches, in a high-quality bottle with a cork enclosure, it is aimed at the more discerning customer.
Lord of the Isles - Ketill Flatnose was a Viking King of the Isles, a seafaring warrior who ruled the vast, rugged and wild western seaboard of Scotland in the late 9th century. His successors were the Celtic Lords of the Isles, who rules their domain from their base Finlaggan on the island, Islay. Fiercly independent, lovers of life and community, they raise a glass to the Lords of the Isles and remind themselves to live their lives like they did before - born of adventure!
Boys of the Isles - The 'Islay Boys Ltd.', are Donald MacKenzie and Mackay Smith, from the villages of Port Charlotte and Portnahaven respectively, both situated on the Rhinns peninsula on the west of Islay, the mythical whisky island. They grew up amongst the 8 distilleries on Islay, and in their veins flows not blood, but Islay Whisky.
Nose: Initial peat smoke, over a honied background.
Palate: Smooth, yet persistent light peat, overlapping delicate sweet notes, which in turn are complemented by touches of citrus fruit. The finish is long and delicately smoky, and ends in a gentle peated sweetness.
