Williamson 6 Year Old - 2014 Producer Notes
This Williamson Islay whisky was re-racked into an ex-Guyana rum barrel for 12 months. No matter how powerful the wood, nothing tempers the aggressive peat smoke that leaps out of this glass. A little time, however, shows a more complex picture of wine gums, ash and treacle, with a touch of camphor oil. The palate is exceptionally powerful, the high alcohol content integrating nicely with fierce smoke, and some high ester fruity notes appearing from the rum. A pleasingly idiosyncratic whisky; if you have the opportunity and stamina, it is best paired with the Guyana rum.
