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 casks, 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.

Reviews for Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire 10 Year Old
Fine Islay whisky. Taste a bit short lasting
My immediate impression on first tasting was Wow!! A real Islay whisky. Beautifully balanced. Maybe a bit sherried for some, not like the original medicinal Laphraoig or the original rough tough Cuillin-flavoured aggressiveness of the Talisker of my youth (yes I know that's from another island, but still...), but still pleasantly challenging. I preferred this to the more fully sherried version which is too soft for my taste. The comment on the flavour being too short lasting is one I agree with. Climbing a Cuillin takes hours. Climbing Beinn Bheigeir is much easier, a long pleasant stroll. The same is true of the best (to my taste) of their whiskies.
Nevertheless I have ordered another bottle, and I don't say that of every whisky I try, not by any means.

A tad disappointed
I had a 3cl sample as part of a pour and sip box. Initially a good hit of sherry and smoke, but the flavour dissipated almost immediately for me.
I have been stalking this for a while, so whilst perfectly drinkable, for me it was a little disappointing. By no means a bad whisky, just not one I will be getting a full bottle of.

Extremely moreish
I bought this as it is evidently popular with Master of Malts customers and I see exactly why. The label talks about "balance" and the balance between the peat and the sherry wood is perfect for my palate. If you are looking for a peat bomb or for great complexity, you might be disappointed but at the price it's as good an example of a sherried Islay as I've found in years. I must have enjoyed it as all disappeared in 8 days and usually a bottle of whisky blasts me a fortnight.

A fantastic whisky.
Forgetting the competitive price, this is an extremely good whisky in its own right. Now considering the price, its outstanding.

Disappointing to say the least.
I bought this after being recommended from the Laphroaig Quarter cask. Bought this for a peaty whiskey tasting group - not a single person liked it and several couldn't even finish it. Tastes like Laphroaig water down with dirty swamp water. All the TCP and none of the flavour.

If you want an Islay for its peat, but without any accompanying taste or complexity 5/5 would recommend...

Buy buy buy
Absolutely fantastic dram, not overly complex but very busy with flavor,the seaweed and fire are impressive together, and balanced really well. Just finished the first bottle, 2nd on order. Give it a go, great price too.

Lovely; but perhaps not for the faint of taste.
Lovely Islay whisky of the old-fashioned rough tough stuff I used to enjoy before so many of them became designer whiskies. I would guess the base is Talisker. I'm not complaining about that. Assertive, but in the nicest possible way. Perhaps not for those who enjoy a more challenging experience. I love it.
