Staoisha 2014 – 2021
“And another one gone and another one gone. Another one bites the dust yeah!”
Queen sang it throughout the eighties and early nineties. And anybody will do the same after opening this absolute stunner. Not just Queen material, we regard it as the King of our recent Staoisha line-up. Thick, straightforward, and powerful. Straight from the island of Islay. Just over 7 years old with a final maturation of 12 months in a very-very fresh & active Oloroso octave, and -hell yeah- it left a mark. A good one that is.
Peat smoke, brine, dark fruits, and pure cacao. A slight nuttiness, which most likely found its way from the Oloroso cask. An intense, long, and lingering finish with a briny peaty aftertaste. There is just so much to explore, but not much more need to be said. This is simply the best Staoisha we’ve put on the market so far. Buy it before it’s gone. Enjoy it before it’s gone. Because another one bites the dust haaaa. Ooh shoot out!
