An awesome peated Irish malt that will knock unbelievers for six. A gentle yet intense peat presence on the palate, this is a brilliantly balanced dram that Islay fans will adore. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010. World Whiskies Awards 2012 - Best Irish Single Malt No Age Statement
I just opened up this bottle last night among 2 close friends. The first sip made us believers. The peat flavor was incredible, evoking an immediate and positive response from each of us. The whiskey is very easy to sip, whether it is neat or on the rocks.

I totally agree with Paddy. When I opened the bottle the alcohol was overpowering. Having left the bottle open a few hours now I can fully get the chocolate notes and some powerful peaty taste like a burnt field. it is a really good one and surprisingly easy to drink even without water

Pretty good, More like Ardmore than Ardbeg, would recommened that you open the bottle and leave it for a few hours to let the whisky get some air, I didn't and all I could taste could taste was peat and alcohol, but once it gets some air it's a nice wee dram.

This was amasing. I love Islay malts, but this was as good in any way than the best from Islay. You can feel the peat smoke coming out from your ears a day after the dram.

unbelievable, as a lover of irish whiskey im glad to see this getting a WWA award, i enjoy the way the smokeyess and spiciness touch the tongue at the same time, yet the smoke dies away first to give a sweet spicy finish, while you think of the mouth explosion thats after happening, this is one that will turn Auchentoshan lovers heads
