How do you caputure the whole of Islay in one glass?

Black bottle is blend of all seven Islays. The nose has dried fruit with a hint but not overbearing peat.

The flavor is very Islay,strong complex with some sweetness, there is the usual smokeness you would expect but not as strong as single Islay malts

After the lighter hit on the palete you are suprised by the long finish with the traditional Islay character, agian the warmth is suprising with the lightness

If you are introducing someone new to Islay or for that matter single malts this is a great starter. All of the flavor without quite the same intensity. One of the better blend and certinly great value.
