I’m always on the lookout for whiskies that break the mold, that go above and beyond and really stand out from the pack while offering extreme value for money. With that in mind I set out to find a malt that would deliver on every front. The Six Isles is a vatted malt (vatted means a combination of single malts) comprised of single malt Scotches from Islay, Jura, Skye, Mull, Orkney and Arran. Illustrious distilleries such as Talisker, Isle of Arran, and Tobermory are all represented in this superb bottling that will tickle the taste buds of any Scotch lover. Orchard fruits of ripe apple and pear greet the nose, but the palate is where this whisky really shines. The spirit glides easily across the tongue, soft and gentle as it reveals juicy ripe pears, malty notes, vanilla, and a gentle peatiness, the signature style of these classic island malts.
If you were to purchase a standard bottle from each of these distilleries and marry these malts together, you could easily spend over $400. Thankfully William Maxwell & Co. Ltd of Edinburgh have done the hard work for you and have created this exquisite expression that we are able to offer for just $49.99 a bottle. Beautiful whisky need not come at a high price, if you know where to look!
