A blend of fine aged whiskies, the most distinctive of which is Laphroaig Single Malt. Islay Mist retains the smoky flavour of Laphroaig whilst offering a delightful softness. This cracking blend has been one of Robbie's Drams top sellers for more years than I care to remember!
Islay Mist Original was originally created in 1922 on the Scottish island of Islay to celebrate Lord Margadale’s 21st birthday. It was thought that the local single malt Scotch, Laphroaig, might be too heavy for some of the guests’ palates. From this the unique blend of Laphroaig with Speyside malts and grain whisky was born.
Nose: A subtle and seductive mixture of smoky peat and seaweed.
Palate: The peat is dominant but mellowed with a complex fusion of sweet malt, salt and oak.
Finish: The soft peat clings to the roof of the mouth as toffee and coffee ensure a bitter-sweet finish.
