Do Lagavulin, Laphroaig and Ardbeg have something to worry about?
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

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
