Smouldering with smokiness, perfectly balanced with oaky sweetness, Ailsa Bay is sheer pride and precision in a bottle, making it the ideal gift for any occasion.

With exacting precision, Ailsa Bay takes distilled whisky craft and innovation to a whole new level. perfectly balancing smoke and sweet flavours through a new-age maturation process known as ‘micro maturation’ or 'cask starting'.

In this unique process, perfected by experimental Master Blender Brian Kinsman, the single malt is first aged in small traditional bourbon casks (sourced from Tuthilltown Spirits in New York) for six to nine months, to rapidly and intensely mature. The liquid then spends several years in virgin, first-fill and refill American oak casks to develop its multi-layered flavours.

Nose: Fresh wood smoke with notes of smouldering damp heather and an extinguished bonfire. Following the smoke is a wave of oaky sweetness and hot buttered toast with an intriguing hint of caramelised apple.

Taste: An immediate punch of peat is quickly balanced by a burst of vanilla oakiness. The flavour meanders between smoke, fruit, creamy toffee and back again.

Finish: With every sip the complexity of the whisky deepens as layer upon layer of flavour is revealed.
