Aerolite Lyndsay 10yo Bottling Note

From The Character of Islay Whisky Company comes a mysterious Islay single malt that goes by the name Aerolite Lyndsay. The peaty whisky has been sourced from an undisclosed distillery on the island, though we have been told that the liquid was aged for 10 years in a mixture of bourbon barrels and Spanish oak sherry quarter casks, which sounds thoroughly delicious. It's bottled without any additional colouring, or any of that chill-filtration, too.

Oh, and the name? If you havn't Countdown-ed it out already, Aerolite Lyndsay is in fact an anagram of the words ‘ten year old Islay’! See what they did there? Very nifty.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lots of maritime peat, with notes of iodine intertwined with honey sweetness, paprika, salted caramel and old bookshelves.

Palate: Smoke returns alongside mint dark chocolate, espresso and new leather, with honey and soy sauce mixed together.

Finish: Boiled mint sweeties, liquorice allsorts, bonfire smoke and toffee penny, with a pinch of salt.

Reviews for Aerolite Lyndsay 10 Year Old - The Character of Islay Whisky Company
Excellent! A better version of most Islay’s
Got this as a present from a whisky connoisseur friend , who mostly drinks independent bottler’s whisky and man - I was not disappointed. It has everything you would expect and know to love form an Islay. So much balance between peat, fruit, delicate toffee mouthfeel and a touch of saltiness. A real treat with zero caramel and gentle , sweet peat!

Wicked. Do it.
I loved this. Such an approachable dram and Islay lovers will enjoy trying to work out which distillery it comes from. It’s not overly peaty at all. My new house whisky.

Sat on the fence
If you do your research, you'll find that this is bottled by Atom Supplies which you'll notice if anyone has ordered from MoM before, is Atom Supplies...
My wife bought me this to celebrate an exam I recently passed. I don't think I've disliked a Islay yet, but I'm on the fence with this one. I've had some really cheap islays which have been fantastic as I enjoy the younger, harsh profile they give. At the price point there is much better out there in my opinion (and it is only mine). I'm around half way through the bottle and I probably need to let it breathe before returning to it, hopefully it mellows a bit more. There's peat smoke and there's some sherried richness but apart from that there's not much going on for me. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad whisky, I think it's one I'd skip after this bottle and not return.

I have to say it was for me a very distinctive taste, not some thing I would go back to .

The island wants you back Jack
If you’ve only drank sweet spays for
Most of your scotch career (10 years ish) as
I did and hated peaty ones. This WILL turn you. It’s lovely, sweet. Smokey and nutty and I’m hooked for life. I’ve been told I’m now on the journey???

A light, refreshing Islay
Definitely Islay but not in your face smokiness.
Gentle on the nose, cold cigarette ash with a little saltiness and fruity sweetness.
Smokiness to the fore on the palate with minty dark chocolate coming through along with a little spiciness.
The finish isn’t long but is warming and slightly sweet.
Before buying this I wasn’t too expectant but I like it.

I've never had a whisky that's felt and tasted so watered down..... I'd be interested to try a cask strength but there's no punch here. No high notes. No heat, no peat. It's all just a bit flat.
