Perhaps not the best choice for my first attempt at a more peaty single malt from Islay. I like the smokiness of it, but there is that back end which is like cough syrup which I just can't get past. Perhaps as time goes on Ill develop a taste for it but for now it sits on the self untouched.
If you have never drunk whiskey and just want to try if you like it-do not buy this one. It is not for beginners. That's for sure. You will hate it, belive me. It has very strong smokey smell and taste. Its like you would put your head inside old chimney and took a mouthfull of sud. Once you pass that point it is actually nice but the taste will linger for a long time in your mouth. I keep it as a medicine drink for sorethroat.
Yes! Yes! Yes! One of the best if not "the best". Well maybe the triple wood is better!
So, this was the third scotch I ever tasted and thought I was offensive. I vehemently avoided Islays ever since. Until 6months ago. Since then I have been collecting whisky from all corners all due to this diamond in the veritable rough!
Medicinal taste is not something I'm looking for in a Single Malt, actually not even in a rail whisky... If this is your thing, more power to you I'll leave a few extra kegs behind in my lifetime for you to enjoy.
My new favorite! Unbelievable smokey flavor.
maybe a little too smokey for my taste
one either loves it or hates it. but if you want perfect example of what islay is, this is The bottle for you. i tasted quite a few, but when i first tasted this one i knew nothing will ever surprise me more. PERFECT
