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 hadn't miraculously worked 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.

Aerolite Lyndsay 10 Year Old - The Character of Islay Whisky Company Reviews

Big fan here

Back here buying a second bottle for the long weekend. Loved my first bottle and it didn't last long! A savoury and sweet nose, light and inviting but full and complex. Great sipper with a sweet finish that made it impossible to have just one. Also, worth telling you guys that I was surprised at the darker colour when my bottle arrived, you need to take a better bottle photo!

An easy Islay

A nice easy everyday drink; not to advocate everyday drinking!

Pleasant, maybe too much so?

My first impressions are it isn't one for me. Very little character to it, I get licorice - A touch of Port Charlotte 10yo brought it some more gravitas? Is it really 10yo? I wonder if it is a Bunnahabhain? I think I detect some similarity with some of their recent NAS releases. Back to Port Charlotte and Ardbeg for me I think, my son may get an unexpected present!

Just seems to lack oomph

Distinctly Islay, very more-ish

This is now my go-to whisky, the regular drinker, distinctly Islay, surprisingly easy to drink and very more-ish.

Easy drinking Islay

Lovely easy drinker - get a bunch of friends and a poker game and this will quickly disappear. It's cracking stuff, plenty of Islay character without punching you in the face and shouting at you about how very ISLAY it is while you writhe in the foetal position hoping your mates will come and save you.

This one is for Islay drinkers, not Islay snobs.

Valentines sorted!

Very good taste, and very smooth.

Peaty whisky is like marmite. You either love it or hate it.
It hits the right spot for me. Smooth, with the peaty flavour that I just love.
If Islay whisky is to your taste then you can’t do better than Aerolite Lyndsay.
