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.

Just a grat dram

Just ordered my second bottle, a great whisky that I just keep going back to, awesome stuff.

Varied taste, most enjoyable.

A most interesting and tasty malt. Decidedly forceful delivery if not shown respect. The sweetness comes through but is not the final kick. Most enjoyable.

Perfect dram and perfect price

For the money, I didnt know what to expect but I thought it was worth a few of my pounds. When it arrived, the labelling made me chuckle but when I had my 1st sip, I was glad I'd made the purchase. It was everything I'd hoped it to be, peaty, sweet, smooth and utterly moorish. I noticed it was slightly cloudy which indicates non chill filtered. Brilliant price for a brilliant dram. A pity its sold out

Awesome value

Awesome value, much better than standard Isley 10/13 year bottling. A lot of sherry, peat, sweetness and impressive long aftertaste. Too bad it’s sold out! Make more!

The Perfect Lockdown Tonic.

So glad I managed to get this before it sold out. The bottle’s just arrived this afternoon, and lockdown is taking a real turn for the better. I’ll echo the the other positive reviews. This is an exceptional whisky. First impressions - there’s a wonderful welcoming caramel, dark oak, vanilla, even cherry, warmth to the finish, and is perfectly balanced with the heft of peat. I tried this whisky without my usual drop of water, tonight I intend to try this with a tiny amount of water, while I have fire in the garden. I imagine I’ll come away even more impressed.
I’m sat in my garden under a blossoming apple tree in the sun listening to early Neil Young, and all I can say is this is the perfect accompaniment.. On a day like today in normal times I’d usually be found on my motorcycle, half way to Scotland, But these aren’t normal times - this whisky is the perfect tonic though. A heartfelt salute to this whisky’s creators.

Sold out is not acceptable.

Utterly brilliant value for money. Smoke, peat, earth, salinity, just a touch of sweetness. An everyday whisky for those who cherish complexity. Please find more (5 stars for sheer value)

Very very good value gets better down the glass

Just got this the other day and tonight was my first go. It is everything it says. Sherry hit with a bit of apply sweetness, followed by a bbqued Wood smokiness with a coastal saltiness right through the middle. For 32 quid very impressive

Dark Trinity

I didn't get red apple, oaken-vanilla, chargrilled well-aged steak. Nor did I get pebbles in the rain.

I did get PEAT-PEAT-PEAT-PEAT, it's a VERY earthy whisky! Also dominant; dark, unsweetened bitter chocolate and liquorice. The sherry is less obvious but is just there in a fleeting moment of sweetness as the whisky hits your tongue. The smoke to accompany the peat is also much less obvious than you'd expect.

I wasn't sure what to make of this initially, I thought it a little two-dimensional, but as my palate adjusted to its idiosyncrasies I appreciated it more and more. I was sad to see the bottle empty!
This is to whisky drinkers what Guinness is to ale drinkers and is definitely not for the novice. I reckon if you ran out of creosote you could paint this on your fence.

Other thoughts:
Ridiculous, pretentious name.
Silly label design.
Could be cheaper.

A plain Jane, I thought, until my whisky goggles bedded in and I fell in love!

Would I revisit? Absolutely, when it's on offer.

Solid

Not sure about the label but definitely a very good drink for the price.

12th April 2020

Yummy

Just arrived yesterday: thanks for usual swift delivery MoM. Initially, thought a little nippy for a 40%er, added a couple of drops of water, & it rocked. Lovely, peaty Islay with a healthy dose of sherry. Excellent value in the current market of really average malts for silly money. Which distillery? Yer havin a laph...

No fuss whisky

I really enjoyed this dram. Everything I want from en Islay whisky, but without all the silly packaging they come with these days. Will be making this a regular dram.
