The aroma is very delicate and contains whiskey notes along with some smoked malt, oak and a little burnt character. The taste is initially a good, rich coffee flavor that slowly changes into a little dark bitter chocolate reminiscent of the good Belgian Valrhona. Smoky malt with dry end is mixed with a little hop bitterness, and it hangs very long in the mouth. The brewery mentions something about vanilla, but in my mouth, I can not perceive vanilla. Oak ’n Islay may not be enjoyed cold, and it must also be poured into a glass with ample surface. It is really delicious and can be enjoyed for dessert or as enjoyment a late evening hour.

Backlog. On tap at Green Lion Inn. Dominated by peat, smoke and whiskey, not really my thing. Rasmus40 (22174) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 6, 2012

Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg.
Almost black colour with a low brown head. Vanilla, coconut and peat in aroma. Really weak body due to the barrel ageing with loads of peaty smokiness. It’s Islay Whisky alright and too much for my liking. The maltiness is long gone.
