Ailsa Bay 1.2 Sweet Smoke Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl, 48.9% ABV

Distilled at Girvan, overlooking Ailsa Craig, Ailsa Bay is the only Scotch whisky to undergo a micro-maturation whereby the spirit is first filled to small ex-bourbon casks for an intense rapid maturation, before being transferred to virgin, first-fill and refill American oak casks for several years.The nose has wood smoke and heather with sweet vanilla oak and candied orange peel. The palate is a perfect balance of peat and vanilla sweetness, with fruit and toffee emerging. The finish has sweet oak balanced with drying peat.
