Scarabus by Hunter Laing 46%

Scarabus by Hunter Laing 46%
Product Description

Region: Islay

Strength: 46%

Volume: 700ml

Scarabus is a new single malt whisky selected by Hunter Laing & Co. who marked the opening of their new Ardnahoe distillery on Islay. While the origin of this whisky is a mystery, it is a big dram, offering an aroma of sweet syrupy pears, white raisins, freshly roasting peanuts and plumes of peaty smoke. A briny sea-salt and leathery note adds depth, again nutty then spiced with mace and vanilla on a very oily and viscous mouthfeel. A fantastic new arrival and a must try for fans of Islay's oily, coastal peat smoke.
