    That's what I call a real drink and I have got this one as a Xmas present too :-)
    At 60.3% the alcohol is well hidden in the peety heavy citrusy flavor, nicely sweet honey and apple taste, and then peppery and grapefruit aftertaste with the long smoky and salty tang. Very light in color and after water addition almost clear drink. Water actually releases more fruity flavours, pineapple, green apples, lemon, ginger and hint of marcipan too. Slightly similar to Lagavulin beauties.
    Fantastic and Strong Islay whisky for very affordable price!

    As We Get It 106% Proof

    I have a bottle of your fine Whisky 8 year old 60.8% vol 106% proof. Is the only one left in the world or have you got loads of them? I would appreciate it if you would let me know where I could get another one.
    Many thanks

    For an 8 year old whisky, this one is a wonderful whisky. Now, I'm not so deep in the game I can name you all the tastes or impressions, but I think that is because there are so many of them in this one, and it rivals several strong peaty whiskies I've tried that are both two and three times as old.
