Islay Journey

To accompany Highland Journey, Hunter Laing have gone and released Islay Journey, a blended malt marrying Islay whiskies! Getting to Islay isn't the easiest trip, so now you can transport yourself there slightly easier with a sip of this smoky whisky, which has been matured in bourbon hogsheads. This one certainly packs a maritime punch.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Hefty aromas of peat smoke, a flint-y minerality, sea breeze and bonfire ash, with a burst of red berry and vanilla sweetness.

Palate Hallmark notes of earthy peat, sea spray and mineral-heavy seaweed, with icing sugar and creamier notes of vanilla and milk chocolate.

Finish Medium length, with a sprinkle of sea salt and a dash of fresh citrus.

Reviews for Islay Journey
Disappointing for an Islay
As a peat lover this is disappointing, too much vanilla coming through and too light on the peat, I'd be hard pressed to rate this as a true Islay in the likes of Arbeg, Lagavulin, Caol Ila etc.

Intense barley flavours on the finish. Amazing.

great Islay blend
Hunter Laing have really shown their blending skills with this one. A great representation of Islay whisky - filled with peat smoke, sea salt and seaweed, but with milk chocolate sweetness coming through. Delicious!

A beautiful Islay blended malt. The creamy notes alongside the earthy peat and seaweed is fantastic.
An excellent whisky! Can't wait to get my hands on another bottle!
