The Scalasaig - Island Hopper - Blended Malt Whisky first batch is hand crafted by carefully selecting 10 Single Malts of various flavour profiles. Some are light, some heavily peated, some rich and dark and some of a more fruity profile.

These mature casks were selected by experts and filled into European oak - the finest fresh‚ first-fill and Dry Oloroso sherry casks to rest and marry for a further 9 months.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Rich fruitcake, polished oak and some distant burning embers Taste: Sweet at first, then some sea saltiness enveloped by the big warming hug of peat smoke Finish: Classically maritime: salty, roasted meats lead to a satisfying big sweet-spice medium length finish.

The perfect serve

We recommend serving neat to introduce you to the liquid, try over ice to enhance the flavour profile.

Meet the maker

Colonsay is a tiny and remote island two and a quarter hours by ferry from the mainland – a place of massive contrasts and stunning beauty. Long sandy beaches with seal covered reefs offshore, soaring sea cliffs, abundant birdlife and a population of about 130 people. They say in these parts you get four seasons in a day as the great Atlantic weather systems sweep over the island. With nothing between here and Canada those weather systems bring fearsome and dramatic winter storms. In summer the island enjoys more sunshine that any other part of Britain.
