What a fantastic find!
I love peaty whiskies, and I love this. I'm just working my way through a bottle (as I write) and I think it tastes as good as other whiskies I've got that cost twice (or even three times) the price.. I probably drink whisky too much, malts and blends, but I can honestly say that is a really, really cracking malt whisky. Slàinte mhath, a chàirdean!
For those people who have been drinking whiskey fo
For those people who have been drinking whiskey for 50 years and still haven't found the one that suits! I say get your hand in your pocket and pay for a decent one that you've probably tried before instead of being a cheapskate. For all other whiskey lovers there's nothing wrong with this it's a nice cheap peaty little dram.
Try it at your own risk!!
I have been an avid fan of Islay malts for many years and have been fortunate enough to try all of the standard malts and several "specials", I have also had some Port Ellen. I thought I would give this one a go and the first sip seemed unbelievably harsh and devoid of any of the usual Islay character. Undeterred I persevered and found no improvement and am tempted to throw it down the sink. I trust my wife's palate in such matters and she declared she will not have any more.
Overpowering smell of bonfire smoke
Make sure you read the description. This whiskey literally smells of bonfire smoke. That's very off putting for me. It's not a smokey aftertaste, but the overpowering smell you get on bonfire night.
Good quality whisky sweet and very smooth a lovely malt whisky at a good price
I normally drink Laphroaig but this is a most acceptable substitute. I have been drinking whisky for 60years. The person who said it was abhorrent obviously has no palette. I had it as a substitute on an on line order and would order again.
Good value middle-of-the-road Islay
I'm a big fan of Islay whisky and this one is excellent value. It's not as complex as some (Ardbeg, Lagavulin) nor as subtle as others (Bowmore, Coal Ila) but sits well in the middle and goes down smoothly.
I have been a whisky drinker for almost 50 years and I have to say that this stuff is absolutely abhorrent. never again"
Cheap, but quality whisky, yesss
Best scotch I've had for while, definitely better tasting than some of the bigger, more expensive names out there.
