What's in a name? Finlaggan Cask Strength whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Finlaggan Cask Strength whiskey, rather than whisky.
I'm a huge fan of peaty Islay Malts but i did not enjoys this one very much, found it to be very rough and unbalanced with a spicynote that did not sit well with me. It's okey considering what a bottle cost but i'd spend the extra 20 quid that a Laphroaigh 10 yo CS costs anyday!

Was given a bottle as a gift, being a big fan of Islay single malts, I enjoyed it immensely just right with the essential aroma's and taste that a good islay should have

Peat wit tones of honey and wild flowers,s´´Soft with lots of flavours. Love it! I´d drink it with a small splash of water.

What a find! I do suspect Lagavulin is what makes this whiskey what is it.
I'll rate it 8/10.
If you enjoy the PeatBombs you'll love FCS.

This is an aquired taste but the more you sip at it the more you appreciate it, gives you a relaxed and contented feeling. Have to admit I put in more water than usual to calm it down
