The Big Strand Whisky is an NAS (Non-Age-Statement) Single Malt Scotch Whisky from an undisclosed Islay Distillery, produced by Morrison & Mackay, the same bottlers of the Carn Mor range of whiskies.
The name - 'The Big Strand' refers to a 7 mile beach on the island stretching from Laggan Point in the north to Kintra in the south.
Delightfully coastal and moderately peated in style. Light and bright, with citrus notes and a touch of sweetness. The peat in this one is akin to a bonfire, rather than excessive iodine.
"A young, salty, smoky wee dram full of the character you would expect and best of all, it won’t break the bank. Islay on a budget, which is becoming a rare thing these days." -whiskyreviews.net
"For a blast of Islay and all its youthful vitality, this hits the spot." - malt-review.com
Unfortunately the word is out that The Big Strand is to be discontinued, so these are our last few bottles.
