Four different casks are selected by hand, ex-bourbon barrels, small quarter casks, virgin American oak barrels and larger European Oak hogsheads. This complex combination creates a golden, creamy peat-smoked Islay malt with warm, toasted vanilla notes. Four Oak is an extraordinary fusion of flavours including hints of sandalwood, pine, fir and willow. It's the big malt from the shores of the big ocean.
