From the archives. "Whisky for philosophers. This superb example of Skye's national drink has a rich nose full of "hot" aromas, like a curry - meaty, fruity, exotic - with a hint of planted hardwood. With water there is a rush of fruit and nuts, then it settles down, with a dash of vinegar and more than a whiff of smoke. Very smooth on the palate, but with the cheerful peppery catch which this fabulous whisky is famed for. Graceful whisky; dangerously drinkable; we found it encouraged philosophical reflections." The original price for this bottle in 1996 was £52.
