The second iteration of Ailsa Bay single malt, replacing the version released in 2016, is both peatier and sweeter than its predecessor. It has, however, gone through the same micro-maturation process as the first edition - one that sees the spirit first filled into smaller-than-average bourbon casks for six to nine months, a process which accelerates maturation before it is then transferred into more traditional casks for several years.

Ailsa Bay Sweet Smoke has notes of damp heather, vanilla oak, creamy toffee and candied orange peel.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    I usually favour an Islay whisky but this was a fantastic recommendation by the local expert at the liquor store. It has a beautiful taste, with just enough smoke, and an amazing finish.

    This whisky is perfect balance of flavours – it has a strong nose of smoke, sea-salt and tarred ropes. The taste is very gentle – almonds and dark chocolate while the finish is very long and fades slowly into waves of peaty smoke.

    Just perfect. Smooth, nice smoke and lovely sweet taste.

    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!
