So, you like a bit of whisky with your peat do you?

Well hold on to your glass, we have an absolute full PX matured sherry-bomb peated whisky for you…A sherry bomb especially created for the 2023 Feis Ile (Islay’s famous yearly whisky festival). The LIMITED EDITION Mac-Talla Pedro Ximenes Feis Ile 2023!

The Mac-Talla Pedro Ximenes Feis Ile 2023 is made from a blend of 26 PX-Matured Islay single malt casks from an unnamed Islay distillery and bottled at a muscular 54.6%abv.

Selected and bottled by a family that is synonymous with Islay whisky – the Morrisons. Previously the owners of Islay Icons Bowmore and Auchentoshen (as well as the highland Glen Garioch distillery), the Morrison family is now independently selecting and bottling Islay single malts under the ‘Mac-Talla’ brand.

OUR TASTING NOTES

Nose: Undoubtedly all about the peat. It’s burnt rubber, fresh laid bitumen with waves of sea-weedy iodine all slathered on top of a rich jammy-sweet base.

Palate: Big and oily as you’d expect with a medium burst of spice strait up. There’s rich stewed fruits, sure… but those peat notes definitely hang around and dominate.

Finish: A seriously big, looong and chewy finish. More (and plenty more) of all of the above. Rich, smoky, iodine-y, salty and …. DELICIOUS!

This is peated whisky – and make no mistake, it’s peated for effect! This is pugilistic peat for the die-hard fans! If you don’t like peat you will HATE this. However, if you – like me – are a fan of peated whisky, then you really can’t afford to miss out on this (and we really don’t have very many of these at all). It’s just so delightfully, bigly – almost industrially – peaty with all those black and tarry notes we ‘smoke-heads’ love.

Do you think of burning rubber as a pheromone? Is ‘hospital-forward flavour profile’ music to your ears (and nose!)? Does the prospect of sipping on iodine-laced bitumen make you shiver with anticipation? Does smelling freshly opened band-aid give you goose-bumps?

If any of these statements make sense, you may just be a peat freak. This month we have a whisky from the spiritual home of peat.

All jokes aside – if you like peated whisky (and it’s a pretty polarising category for sure) you are going to LOVE this one.

FROM MAC-TALLA

From one of Scotland’s oldest Whisky families, previous owners of Bowmore, Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch; the Morrison Family.
Mac-Talla means ‘Echo’ in Scottish Gaelic and reflects the Morrison family connection to the island of Islay perfectly.

This Limited Edition release for the 2023 Feis Ile festival was created from twenty-six exceptional, hand-selected casks of Islay Single Malt, with the influence of PX Sherry bringing a rich, fruit sweetness, as well as structure and depth to this smoky Islay single malt scotch whisky.

Deep copper in colour, the nose is brimming with maritime smoke, burnt toffee, stewed berries, bonfire, dates, rum and raisin with orange marmalade.

ABOUT MAC-TALLA

Mac-talla, meaning “echo” in Scottish Gaelic, perfectly reflects the connection the Morrison family have had with Islay for generations. Allow them to take you on a taste journey across the island.

As one of Scotland’s oldest whisky families, the Morrisons have had a strong presence on Islay for four generations. Let them take you on a taste journey across the island, allowing you to discover the depth and variety this perfect whisky making environment has to offer.

Each whisky in the Mac-Talla range has been carved by Islay’s weather-beaten shores. It’s a taste of the untamed that leaves a lasting impression.

There’s no place like Islay. Steeped in tradition, shaped by the elements, it’s long been a breeding ground for greatness. Great history. Great legacy. Great whisky.
