Finlaggan Old Reserve, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$84.95 inc GST

700 ml, 40.0% abv, Scotland (Islay)

Finlaggan is very much the secret Islay, as the name of the distillery from which it comes is a closely guarded secret and known to only a select few.

The Island of Islay lies in the stormy waters of the Atlantic Ocean just off the West coast of Scotland. Many centuries ago, the Lord of the Isles ruled Scotland from the stronghold of Finlaggan Castle on Islay.

“This is simply awesome. If you don’t get a bottle of this you will regret it for the rest of your life”-(Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2006)

Description

Nose: Big breakfast fruitiness (old preserve, more like) plus nuts and chocolate. What a start

Palate: fat mouth arrival, more chocolate and ..oh peat, lashings of it.

Finish: Back to fruit again, then a chocolate mousse, all interlocked by peat. Brilliant!
