Tasting Notes


You don’t often see a Caol Ila finished in Palo Cortado and we waited until we felt the time was right. Gentle spices and sweet smoke, sea salt and that familiar iodine.


Malt, oak, butterscotch and dried fruit with a fantastic oily mouth feel with that classic Islay peat smoke.


Peppery peat, long finish, cream and smoke with a wild island finish.
Paloma – Palo Cortado finish
We created Paloma to tell the story about the influence different types of sherry can have on a variety of single malt whiskies. By focusing on the Spanish connection in terms of Art and the name, Paloma means ‘Dove’ in Spanish, we have created something that is beautiful, timeless and tastes incredible.
