Scarabus Batch Strength by Hunter Laing 57% 700ml
This is the first expression from the new 'Scarabus' range by independent bottler Hunter Laing. Launched at the Fèis Ìle 2019 at their newly opened Ardnahoe distillery, Scarabus is a mystery malt which showcases a traditional Islay whisky style of typical medicinal smoke balanced with rich, sweeter notes. It is named after a farmland on Islay where once a Scarabuss Distillery operated for a short time between 1817-18.
Official Tasting Notes: Aromas of Islay peat smoke and sea salt, followed by warming leather notes, stewed rhubarb and a wonderful vanilla sweetness on the palate, leading to a rich lingering finish.
