    Found a bottle of this going for nearly half price in Tesco, and bought with the hope that it would save me from draining my Lagavulin & Port Charlotte on nights when I shouldn't really be drinking. I also hoped, even if it wasn't great for sipping, that it might at least be useful as a smoky base for scotch cocktails. It's exactly what I wanted. Took me a couple of sips before I started enjoying it, but compared with my core collection and it definitely stood up, despite not quite winning the day. It's precisely what it says on the bottle. Smoky. Peaty. An Islay daily sipper that is perfect for giving mixed drinks a smoky character that you only really get from Islay. It's very good, and if it was sold at twice the price with more classic-style branding people would be shouting a lot more about it.

    John Hudson,

    Just been given another bottle for my 70th Birthday, i've already had two of these and fully enjoyed each one. as far as the distiller is concerned, i have been informed that its Ardbeg so a bit of comparison is on the line. its a beautiful smokey Dram, well worth the money.

    First time trying this not a bad whiskey as I'm usually drinking Jameson Irish if course but to be honest it's a strong flavour which is very nice I would buy it again

    This is really disgusting. insanely unpleasant. Avoid.

    An exploratory lockdown purchase by a peat lover that probably won’t be repeated. Moderate nose, good peaty strength but rather crude character. Other flavour characteristics are swamped by the sickly sweetness levels, giving a very odd overall flavour profile. Will try again, but only after more promising lockdown candidates.
