An excellent whisky. Salty sea-air, briney, oily and a touch of ginger. Imagine what it would have been like at 46% and unchillfiltered! Still, a lovely outdoor dram on a bracing day.

Honestly I got this one blind. I was interested in the history of Campbeltown and wanted to try something new... I wasn't expecting much more than a run of the mill 12 yr, but I got a nicely peated maritime dram with a lingering finish that seemed more aged than 12 years. This won't be my last bottle.
