MacDuff International are delighted to announce the first new addition to the Islay Mist range in almost 10 years. Islay Mist Peated Reserve adds a smokier finish while retaining Islay Mist’s unique balance. Created by master blender, Gilmour Burnett, this premium blend will be available in shops in the coming weeks in 700ml size and will soon also be produced in litre size for travel retail.
Islay Mist was originally created in 1922 in Islay to celebrate the 21st birthday of Lord Margadale. It was thought that the local single malt scotch, Laphroaig, might be too heavy for all the guests’ taste so this rare blend of Laphroaig with Speyside malts and grain whisky was born.
This should hopefully be coming to The Whisky Shop, Master of Malt and others very soon, in the meantime you can check out the Islay Mist Deluxe Blend, 12 year old blend and 17 year old blend from many whisky specialists.
