This Italian whisky made from mixed malted grains (rye, barley and wheat) has been discontinued after being sued by the SWA for the use of the word Alba – which is Gaelic for Scotland.
From The Official Website
ALBA – the Italian word for dawn – is matured for three years in the finest Marsala casks from Sicily and finished in handselected ex-peated casks. This whisky is a harmonious combination of rich & fruity wine aromas of Italy and distinctive smoky flavours.
ALBA is a winter whisky. The nose and taste has lovely aromas of dark fruit, plum jam and christmas spices. The first impression is very warm and engaging with the fruity flavours slowly giving way to aromas of pepper, nuts and herbs. All of these are complemented by a gentle mist of peat that engulfs the winey notes, but never becomes too overpowering.
