92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This light gold Scotch offers insistent--but not overwhelming--smoke and brine from the first sip to the last. It turns drying, salty and smoky, hinting at green olives, smoked trout and faraway brush fires. Adding water allows a tinge of vanilla to peek over the smoky horizon. Alcohol 46%. (Dec 2018)"

Islay is more than just an Island! It’s a style, a flavour, an ideal, a destination steeped in history and folklore and a nirvana for fans of the smokier style of Scotch whisky. The Big Smoke was created to blend malt whiskies from some of the islands most iconic distilleries, and then bottled at a relatively young age in its most rugged form. This whisky is reminiscent of traditional Islay malts, full of peat smoke and coastal sweetness, powerful yet caressing, everything you would expect from a blend that includes Caol Ila, Bruichladdich and Ardbeg.

The Big Smoke 46 (46% abv) gives a gentle introduction to the Islay style. The bonfire and seaweed characteristics you would expect are wrapped up in layers of sweet vanilla from the fresh American Oak.
