Ramey Pedregal Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

SKU 5238


Nose: Salty, peat, sherry. Palate: Vanilla, nutty oils, smokiness. Finish: Perfectly balanced peat, oak and vanilla. The ultimate in blended Islay whiskies; Islay Mist is a truly extraordinary Scotch, the perfect balance of oak, grain, malt and peat. As whisky expert Jim Murray says in his 2004 Whisky Bible, Islay Mist 17 Year Old is "arms-behind-the-head, lean-back-and-close-the-eyes-stuff... Brilliant." And with a score of 93 out of 100, the second highest tally for any blended whisky out of the 2000 whiskies tested, it is high praise indeed.

Wine SpectatorMarked by a dose of charry, smoky oak, this offers dense flavors of dark berry, currant, black licorice and dried herb. Ends with gutsy tannins and a persistent finish. Needs cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2024. 364 cases made.
