Concept 8 Blended Malt, 8 Year Old 40.8%


This release of Concept 8 is a blended malt Scotch whisky carefully crafted from four single malts sourced from the Highland, Speyside, and Islay regions of Scotland. The influence of Islay is particularly prominent in this expression, adding a distinctive smokey character to the dram. This is a testament to the artistry of blending, combining the distinct characteristics of single malts from different regions to create a harmonious and memorable whisky experience. Whether enjoyed neat or with a splash of water, it promises to captivate the senses and evoke the spirit of Scotland's diverse whisky landscape.   Tasting Notes:  Nose:  The immediate presence of peat unfolds, characterised by its sweet and fragrant nature. The smokiness, reminiscent of a gentle Cuban cigar, gracefully accompanies the peat. Subtle notes of apricot, rum, and raisins emerge, harmonising with a distinct red berry accent.   Palate: Mouth-watering and sumptuous peat takes centre stage. The red berry note persists, accompanied by a lively cranberry bite, adding a delightful complexity to the overall tasting experience.   Finish: It imparts a warming and comforting sensation with lingering red berry notes.
