New Elements Of Islay Whiskies Debut In The U.S.

Scottish single-malt brand Elements of Islay recently introduced its core range of blended malt whiskies to the U.S.

A statement from the small-batch brand notes that each of their limited-edition whiskies are intended to capture the essence of their origin, the Scottish Isle of Islay.

The three expressions coming to the U.S. are Elements of Islay Cask Edit, Elements of Islay Bourbon and Elements of Islay Sherry. Each are small-batch, sourced, and independently bottled whiskies that are natural in color and non-chill filtered.

The whisky maker noted that each expression is also inspired by a different element of maturation.

Oliver Chilton, master blender for Elixir Distillers, said Elements of Islay’s rich, smoky flavors make this range a special start to the Elements of Islay whisky journey.

“The blend combines a fresher, fruitier style of peaty Islay single malt from the north coast with a typical rich and smoky style from Islay’s south coast,” he said. “And has been matured in four different styles of casks to offer a complex but balanced whisky for enthusiasts and people looking to discover the incredible island of Islay. We already had an excellent reception in other markets and hope we’ll introduce more U.S.-based drinkers to the joy of Islay whiskies.”

Cask Edit is a blend of two single malts aged in bourbon and sherry casks that clocks in at 46% ABV. It has a suggested retail price of £44.95.

Bourbon Cask is matured in first-fill and refill bourbon barrels and is bottled at 54.5% ABV. It has a suggested retail price of £59.95.

Sherry Cask offers flavors of dried fruits, dark chocolate, lemon oil and smoke and comes bottled at 54.5% ABV. It has a suggested retail price of £64.95.

The new Elements of Islay range will be available in the U.S. starting March 1st through distributor Impex.
