Ailsa Bay Sweet Smoke Reviews
Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: Fresh wood smoke with notes of smouldering damp heather and an extinguished bonfire. Following the smoke is a wave of oaky sweetness and vanilla oak, candied orange peel.
Taste: Beautifully-balanced peat and rich vanilla oakiness, this second batch has maintained the same intriguing flavour meandering between smoke, fruit and creamy toffee, this extra maturation period has developed deeper toasty oak notes with every sip.
Finish: An intriguing balance of oaky sweetness and peaty dryness.

a sweet and peaty lowland malt nearly as good as my favourite Islays
My wife bought this for me as we left London in the fall. I opened it at Christmas Eve get together, and I was never so embarrassed in my life! The Sweet Smoke smelled and tasted like a cross between drain cleaner and lighter fluid!
Delightful. Soft yet powerful. The absolute right balance of peat and sweet. Addicting, watch out. And from a Lowland nonetheless. Holy cow, Islay watch your back...
