Tasting Notes

Kapow! Smoke! Call the Fire Brigade! A waft of peat and smoke.

You only need to dig a bit for the malt and creamy oak which holds it together. This whisky has everything: big burning embers, smoky bonfire and a tad of mellowed sweetish oak. It's a peppery and lively spirit.

So chewy, so smoky, so Firkin Islay.

About This Whisky

This is the story of two islands, Islay and Sicily, and how they produced an award-winning whisky. 

Firkin Islay combines the peaty smokiness of Caol Ila 2010 with the Muscat grape sweetness of Marsala. The flavours fuse together in our custom double wood cask. Our unique process mellows and softens the peat. Firkin Islay is a new take on a classic Islay whisky.

Salty peat and smoke with a touch of sweetness. Firkin Islay Coal Ila won a gold medal in the Whiskies of the World awards in the peated whiskies category.
