A mystery Islay single malt from an unnamed distillery, purported by many to be Lagavulin, which somehow seems a little unlikely to us. That said, this is a terrific dram for the money and likely to appeal to frugal peatheads.
Didn't like this one at all. Has a very noticeable aftertaste that reminds me of Grouse or some other cheap blends! Have tasted many better Islay malts for the same sort of price - really struggled to finish this bottle.

I think this is a young-ish Caol Ila, despite the "old reserve" label. Pretty good for 40 percent, but if you like this you should certainly try the cask-strength version - lots more peaty goodness!

This whisky surely has great price/quality.
It tastes really good, but there's something strange about the nose. I don't know, as I am no true connoisseur but I don't like the nose that much

Good dram at a damn good price

Nice dram. The one ordered about a month ago must Caol Ila, since there is not as much peatiness as Lagavulin.

I find it à very pleasant wiskey to drink, i was told it comes from THE Lagavullin distillery, but who van tell? Personally i find this à gold whisky given its price!

Great dram. Wonderful taste. Excellent ashy, smokey, peaty finish. The price is wonderful. I prefer this over "Black Bottle." If you want a change from a Laphroaig 10 y.o. and want to preserve your Uigeadail and Ardbeg expressions, this will definitely do.
