A truly fascinating whisky, Muckle Flugga is made by blending together six single malts which are then shipped to Unst, near the Muckle Flugga lighthouse (which was built by Robert Louis Stevenson's father in 1854) in the Shetlands. The whisky spends a year on the island, surviving the harsh seasons before being returned to the mainland for bottling.
Nose: Hints of fruity honey and a little sherry on the nose. Toasty and faintly herbal.
Palate: Lovely interplay between oak and barley. Those sherry casks make themselves known subtly and delicately with a touch of dried peels and soft spices.
Finish: Malty, fruit-driven finish.

I'm no expert and am slowly making my way into this wonderful world of whisky.This hard-to-find bottle is a simple drinking pleasure. Smooth and clean, warm and gentle. I couldn't give you a tasting note as I don't have the ability - but I can give you a recommendation if smoothness and a wonderful sense of romance are your thing.

My wife bought me a bottle for a gift , I treasure every glass and have eeked it out so as not to waste it . I only have one large measure with welsh water . It stands head and shoulders above many other expensive blends and I will not begrudge paying out for another. I don't care where it comes from I only care about the experience and thoroughly endorse it!!

My sister was hame in Shetland for a wee break and brought me back thisBeautiful Muckle Flugga blended malt whisky..great looking bottle contents are a rich darkish colour..but..a word of warning..the taste is too good ! Talk about easy drinking !! Don't give this to anyone (keep it for yourself) Is this really kept on Unst for a year ?

I'm in my 90's and tasting new Malts is one of the pleasures of life. A gift of a bottle of Muckle Flugga was supposed to be a special treat but I confess to being disappointed. It has a hint of sharpness to it which I have never before experienced in any Malt.

I see the 'Mackle Flugga Details' section on the left panel says that the distillery is 'Muckle Flugga'. It would be nice to be told where the distilleries are, but rest assured they're not in Shetland, any more than the distillery for Blackwood's Gin is in Shetland (which is what many people believe, despite the small print on the bottle). Many of us who actually live in Shetland would really rather you didn't use the Shetland name for products that, however good they may be, have only the most ephemeral connection with the islands.

Is there proof that this is stored in Unst? I live in unst and don't believe it is stored here!
I bought this because my family have an interest in Shetland and Blackwoods Gin.I have now order some more as it is very very morish!

This is worlds above any other blended whisky I have tried. A really smooth drink which is very moreish. Great for everyday drinking.
