From The Character of Islay Whisky Company comes a mysterious independent Islay release that goes by the name Aerolite Lyndsay. The Islay peated whisky is from an undisclosed distillery aged for 10 years in a mixture of bourbon barrels and Spanish oak sherry quarter casks.
Aerolite Lyndsay is in fact an anagram of the words “ten year old Islay”!
Nose: Lots of maritime peat, with notes of iodine intertwined with honey sweetness, salted caramel and old bookshelves.
Palate: Smoke returns alongside dark chocolate, espresso and new leather.
Finish: Boiled mint sweeties, liquorice allsorts, bonfire smoke and toffee, with a pinch of salt.
