Had Islay's Lossit Distillery not closed in 1867, this is Lost Distillery's interpretation of what the whisky might taste like today, part of a series. This golden Scotch has a peaty aroma, with a honeyed undercurrent. Notably smooth and silky on the palate, a medicinal, iodine note leads on the palate, followed by bold peat smoke and hints of BBQ-like mesquite. A faint citrus note plays on the smoky, peppery fade. A splash of water helps temper the lip--numbing alcohol heat. — K.N.
