These bottles always offer good value for money for cask-strength Islay whisky. Previously bottled with age statements (~8yo), these new ones pack a similar punch – always peaty, always fun, but the distillery is unknown!

Here are my notes:
Nose: Clean, youthful peat mixed with a really big soot smell – pretty sure this is what a peat fire smells like once it’s gone out
Taste: Sweet yet slightly tart – lemon sweets? Pear drops
Finish: Sherbert and Parma Violets
Nose: lime chewits and a cooked breakfast.
Taste: very tangy to begin with, fading to smoke after a while. Fizzy cola bottles and bacon.
Finish is long hot and sour.
Very nice this. Agree with the citrus notes, and it clears your sinuses. Would guess Caol Ila…
Nose: how a a wood burning stove in a little cottage on a damp day would make you feel – mm. Slices of a juicy pear.
Taste: Ooph – lovely and oily. Poached haddock for breakfast.
Finish: long and tasty.
