A cask strength single malt, no one knows which distillery this has come from, Finlaggan remains a very closely-guarded secret.

An absolute find. Power, grace, balance. Nadal on clay. That good. And please, mums the word. If this whisky gets better known, forget it. So, shhhh....quiet!

I think it is from Laggavulin not from dist.

Absolutely cracking! I'd love to know who makes it, but I suppose I never shall (though I have my own ideas). Super complex flavour; cask strength; £41. What more is there to say?

So my favourite drams are Aberlour A'bunnah, Ardbeg Uigeadail & Corryvreckan. Then my friend handed me a glass of this. The three and now four.What a stunner! Got to be tasted to be believed at that price-point. Grab it while it's still unknown, once the rest of the world discovers it, the price could easily double.

Finlaggan Cask Strength - This is my absolute favourite highest noted bottle. The new shining star in my little cabinet. The pleasure of detecting it by recommendation for a whisky tasting from one of my friends a short while ago really changed my life quite a bit. I may mention, that it must be distilled in Caol Ila, for those flavours, for changing temporarily my sight of life in such a beautiful way - there is no other distiller doing it that way - thank you for that. I've tried the 46% as well - nice but not as nice as the 58% one, here we have the strength, the full character and the strength also the change you can feel shortly after having the first sip (Pure of course, no water) - it is a whole new philosophy showing me the way and the answer of the question - why are we here on this planet ** One of our major tasks must be to enjoy ourselves and be good to ourselves in order to be good to others. Thank you guys who created this wonderful water of life, you are making it worthwhile going for and challenging the rest of my days!!

I've been enjoying Islay malts for 40years. This has it all. One of the best.

Oh man, I opened this one yesterday just to smell and I had concerns for tasting it. After 15 minutes in the glass it still smells awful, like it had been aging in cheap x mas tree casks. I was wondering what it is, but it smell a bit like (cheap) Calvados. And it tastes just the same, and I don't like Calvados. Must say I have a bottle CS at 58% here, slight different maybe. I'm sure I will not have another pour of this one.The previous reviewer already stated that Ardbeg, Lahproaig or Lagavullin don't have anything to fear. Well, I guess nobody has anything to fear from this one.

...of course not. What are you mad! But it is hard to fault the price of this Islay Single Malt. I score it an 8 but the price factors in heavily here.

I tried Finlaggan Malt recently and it was superb but reading previous comments, why would you buy cask strength just to water it down ?? Take it like a man and put hairs on your chest :-)

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.

fantastic! Cask class.

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
