700 ml, 46% abv, Scotland (Islay)"Smokey Joe" is a blend of Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, distilled on the island of Islay, off the south western coast of Scotland. We dont know exactly which distilleries are represented, so its a mystery to contemplate as you sip on a dram. Islay malts take their characteristics both from the local peat used to dry the barley and their closeness to the sea. These factors, typically, imbue the malts with a distinctive sea-weedy, phenolic and peaty flavour. Smokey Joe is bottled at 46% ABV to enhance impact and flavour. The whisky that makes up Smokey Joe has been selected for its highly engaging nose, balance of smoke and peppery spice on the palate and a lingering finish. " This Islay Malt showers the senses with smoke and peaty impressions and yet, overall, one is left with a feeling of tranquil fulfillment, reflecting the balance and subtle complexity therein" "Smoke fills the mouth and the sweetness hits a little later. Velvety and mouth coating"

700 ml, 48.0% abv, Scotland (ISLAY)Laphroaig Quarter Cask takes its inspiration from the small casks often used for Scotch Whisky in the 19th century and frequently transported across the Glens by packhorse.

It was noted that the small cask size gave up to 30% greater contact with the wood compared to some of the larger sizes used today, thus greatly intensifying the maturation process. For greater authenticity they simply barrier filtered the whisky, the method used in those days, and bottled at a higher alcoholic strength.
