Ailsa Bay Single Malt
Founded in 2007 with a capacity of 12,000,000 litres on the same site as Girvan. Several styles of malt whisky are produced there, from sweet and light to heavier and more sulphury (two stills have steel condenser rather than copper) as well as peated styles up to 50ppm
Nose: Intense, smoky phenolic note but balanced with creamy, honeyed sweetness. Then…smoky bacon!
Palate: Zingy, peaty kick layered with beautiful sweetness. A meaty character too – crispy rasher with a hint of maple syrup.
Finish: Huge – goes on forever. Again balance of smoke and sweet, savoury but candied spice notes – due to the Oak casks (vanilla) and Hudson (oily, syrupy, sweet).
