Seaweed & Aeons 10yo Bottling Note

This right here is a 10 year old single malt from an undisclosed distillery on Islay, with 25% of it having been finished in first-fill Oloroso sherry octaves, and bestowed the decidedly descriptive name Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire. If those four words (and three ampersands) aren't quite enough of an explanation of what this expression is all about, here are a few more: stripped-back, smoky, complex, a bit sherried, balanced, coastal. Yeah, that should do it. Great for people who love uncompromising Islay whisky and sans-serif fonts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich, powerful sherry with a well-integrated core of peat. Solid.

Palate: Well-balanced but extremely forceful on delivery. The sherry makes itself known in a really good way.

Finish: Red apple sweetness gives way to oaken-vanilla goodness and fades elegantly into the embers of a chargrilled well-aged steak.

Overall: A thoroughly impressive dram. One would be forgiven for mistaking it for an OB with another 5 years of age on it.

Too medicinal

Too medicinal.

A bit of a beast. I really liked it.

A bold and approachable peated whisky

A fairly bold peated taste with plenty of sweetness. Coming in fairly blind I was really impressed with this, would recommend.

A solid bargain Islay

Golden amber in appearance, unusual for an Islay and clearly from the sherry influence, this also shows in the nose. A deep sweet sherry note mixes along with a good dose of peatiness. A little medicinal too, iodine and a waft of sea spray.
For an Islay it's very sweet in the mouth, honey and caramel mix with the smoke, mouth tingling, a little black pepper and a subtle chilli catch develop. It does however feel a little thin in the mouth.
The finish is warming, the spice remains, but it's gone fairly quickly leaving you with that cloved Christmas ham feel.
It's an easy drinking Islay, perfectly pleasant, not spectacular - but for £30 a bottle would be a solid bargain purchase for a fan of the region.

Sublime...you wont taste better for the money.

sublime...just picking up my next bottle. really complex finish and just feels like all the best fun you ever had sat on a beach with a bonfire eating toffees, BBQ met and smelling the sea behind you. Really really B**dly good. Its punchy and gutsy, and beats many fine established names on many levels. Top 10 bottle...ever.

Far to easy to drink

Saltey, Smokey, and Earth. Great malt for a great price. So easy to drink.

Antiseptic Hospital Corridor Aroma

I couldn't agree more with the review below about the "Antiseptic Hospital Corridor Aroma," but that's why I love it. It's a bit like a Laphroaig, but rounded off with a sweet sherry note. The sweetness of the sherry runs the risk of debasing the underlying Islay peatiness (in the same way that adding Coca Cola would), but it actually adds nicely to the complexity. Looking forward to drinking it in the garden on long summer evenings which is not when I would normally want to drink an Islay malt.

Hospital aroma? Yeah, delicious!

Well yes - a nice big dollop of TCP, along with peat and smoke. Classic Islay.

I think you're being put off by the basic packaging and assuming there's something wrong with it because of that. You keep paying a £20 premium for the brand name juice and I'll keep buying the same stuff much cheaper here.

Definitely worth a pint for lovers of pleated/medicinal drams

You won’t mistake this for a top tier dram, I found it somewhat watery though the immediate peat hit is substantial and complex. Balance is off for me and the lack of mouth-coating is a definite mark against, but worth a punt for lovers of peat/medicinal whiskies and many do seem to love it...
