It's brilliant. I think it's Caol Ila :) The smoky, cured meat smell with some fruity notes. Phenolic, slightly peppery with some dark chocolate. Peaty to the right degree. I love it, especially for the price!
This is not a whisky for the faint hearted. It has a real whallop of peat and heat that goes on and on, with some soft fruit in the background. Would be fascinated to know where it comes from, instinct says it's from the high peat end of the distilleries so Caol Ila or maybe even Ardbeg - so the first reviewer is right, this bruiser is really good value for money. The only reason I've not given five stars is it lacks that bit of class to be the very best but a definite 4.5
This is a cracking whisky, tasted this recently and was well impressed. To me if this whisky had the distillers label it would cost a lot more than a mere thirty two pounds. The flavour is powerful and full bodied not unlike a Caol lla. If you like your whisky with a bit of a bite to it then give this a go.
