Interesting fact… Finlaggan Old Reserve whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Finlaggan Old Reserve whiskey, instead of whisky.
If you are a peat lover this is an amazing scotch for the price. you wont find any other islay single malt for this price and its not bad. for all the negative reviews out there, Im assuming that those people are not a fan of the heavily peated scotches such as laguavulin, Talisker, Laphoriag, Bowmore or Ardbeg. for under $20 bucks a bottle this beats all other competitors at it's price point.

Worst crap I ever bought at Trader Joes. This tasted like someone threw 4 pounds of pete moss into a bottle. I tried another glass and poured the whole $30 worth with tax down the drain. Do not buy it! Crap! Crap! Crap! They should be ashamed. I love scotch and different varaieties take time to learn to enjoy vs some others, but usually likable after a few tastes or glass fulls. This stuff is absolute dirt moss. I poured the rest of the bottle down the drain.

even at $20, this whisky is a ripoff. i love the peatiness of it, but it isn't a good tasting spirit at all. in other words, you get peat and pretty much nothing else. just not worth the money. save your money and spend about $20 more for laphroaig 10. you've been warned...

After i poured it in my glass, i thought there's a house on fire in my nearness. Then i drunk it, big surprise. Real nice Whiskey. The flavour rested in my mouth as if i was standing in that, just burned of house. Really spooky.

Has the sea salt and smoke that makes Islay products famous. Not match to Ardberg and such, but if you're looking for affordable Islay, this is your choice.

Have been drinking Finlaggan for a few years now - along with others - it always delights the willing tastbuds,almost like a more delicate Laphroaig.
