Earthy smoky peat and salty ocean breeze on the nose. Pungent peat smoke, chewy sweet malt, pepper, tar and a touch of iodine on the palate. Long and warming. Smoky ashes of the peat fire finish. Vintage Malt was founded in 1992 by Brian Crook, after many years’ in the whisky industry as Export Director for one of Scotland’s best known distillers. His aim was to produce a range of malt whiskies from his country’s finest distilleries and make them available to independent wine and spirit importers throughout the world. The company’s award winning brands include Finlaggan and The Ileach, two single malts from the island of Islay on the west coast of Scotland and The Cooper’s Choice, a superb range of single cask bottlings.
