Blog Post Three: Now I'm getting the hang of this…
New for 2020 and yes it is once again...
"Kapow! Smoke! Call the Fire Brigade!"
But for this new edition of Firkin Islay, it is the story of two islands: Islay & 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 cask. Our unique process mellows and softens the peat. Firkin Islay is a new take on a classic Islay whisky.
Salty peat & smoke with a touch of sweetness.
Firkin Islay Coal Ila won a gold medal in the 2020 Whiskies of the World awards in the peated whiskies category. But that doesn’t come as a massive surprise.
