Uncharted Whisky Co. - Rumours, Chapter 2: 30 Year Old Islay Single Malt
Gentle smouldering smoke, ripe apple accompanies delicate violets, florals and aromatics esters. Gentle and fragrant spices abound including cloves, baked ginger and dark cocoa.
Tender and mild smoke and chocolate followed by an unctuous creamy mouthfeel of violet cremes, honey, blossom and spiced fruit loaf.
The rich, smooth and creamy palate dries out on the finish revealing a delightful complexity of spices. Soft baked ginger, cinnamon, cloves and citrus oil are all wrapped in a smooth and fragrant smoke. The lightness and complexity linger on the palate long after the whisky has gone and aromatics continue to develop with each sip.

A new series of Single Cask bottlings from The Uncharted Whisky Company.
Rumours – Chapter 2. is the second mysterious release from the Rumours range. Again featuring an un-named Islay distillery, but this time aged for a whopping 30 years!
Three long decades have seen the angels take their share on this beauty, leaving just under 250 bottles to us mortal souls. Making it even more of a rarity, and even more desirable.
This elusive dram was bottled at natural cask strength of 51.3%... those angels really have had some fun eh? Each of these stylish and tactile bottles has been individually labelled by hand and is proudly offered to you free from colouring or chill-filtration.
They've only gone and done it again, but where did Uncharted Whisky Co. find this extraordinary spirit? No one knows the real answer, only second-hand guesses... only rumours.
A rich, floral and esthery Islay, beautifully aged with fragrant peat smoke, violets and a complete lack of medicinality.
You'll just have to buy a bottle and try it yourself eh?
"Neither mouth of river, nor sound of Islay harbour spirit such as this
A bouquet of violets, rose and smoke, sealed with a kiss
Rumours can leave a mind troubled as much as puzzled
Take out lo and behold elbowroom befuddled..."
