The Ailsa Bay 1.2 Sweet Smoke is a Scotch whisky that is bottled in a decidedly captivating and easily recognizable bottle. Both for the very large characters shown on the bottle, and for its shape, very elongated despite being a bottle containing the classics 70cl. This whisky comes from the Scottish Lowlands.
The peculiarity of this 1.2 Sweet Smoke lies in the aging, which the whisky is subjected. Although the most important “rest” occurs in traditional ex-Bourbon barrels, the spirit is first filled into smaller-sized ex-Bourbon barrels for a period ranging from 6 to 9 months.
