The gateway scotch for peat lovers
Very Peaty, But Good
A first cousin of Lagavulin
As others have said, this is a Lagavulin clone. At this price point, I think it is a bargain. Obviously, not everyone will like the intense smoky flavor but that doesn't mean it is bad Scotch. I would not hesitate to have it among my selection of Scotches.

So similar, in so many different ways, that i would not be at all surprised that this came out the back door of the Lagavulin distillery at 10 years of age and was rebadged as Finlaggan Old Reserve, which tellingly fails to tell us just how old it is........

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.
