The late 2012 release under Bruichladdich's Octomore label, peated to a fairly astounding 169ppm. Expect fire from the cask strength and lots of smoke, but also some elegance hiding behind the fireworks. As ever the producer's notes (below) are well worth a read.

    Unbelievable for such a young potent, even by Isla standards. 169ppm phenol obliterates the palette at first sip, staining you now to love no other. And yet, the peat is rich and dark, missing the iodine bite of a Laphroig... making the ridiculous phenol level quite pleasant and willing to give way to subtle fruit, salt, and honey notes on the second visit. A bit pricey for a 5yo, but worth every penny. Drink it alone, not to be wasted on your sophomoric friends...

  • Cosmin Marginean,

    Nose: Heavy Diesel and smoke Palate: Smoke and a hint of honey Finish: Very silky and smooth for this ABV. The peat is lingering so in a sampling make sure you leave this for last. Truly impressive. I would recommend having it in a tasting with other (preferably fruity) samples, to truly unveil its potential.

  • Smokiechops,

    An amazing whisky. So smooth for 59.5%. It's got everything, its sweet and savoury tons of peat, smoke, fruity and nutty. You won't be dissapointed.
