Finlaggan Old Reserve Islay Malt Reviews

As an Islay lover, I believe this is the best Islay for the $ but do not believe it is a young Lagavulin. It''s light body & intense peat suggest a young Ardbeg, if you drink it out of the same glass as aged Islay''s it brings out the characteristics of Ardbeg much more than the fuller bodied Islay''s.
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.
