Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire 10 Year Old to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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.

Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire 10 Year Old Reviews

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...

Agree with the hospital corridor aroma

I fell for the hype of this brand like many others before me. It's far too medicinal for me. The aroma is so pungent, even when you aren't drinking it, I could smell it from my wife's glass. I can understand that some of the flavours are certainly interesting. The sherry notes and the peatiness coming through give it a unique taste. But I was expecting more balance and the seaweed was non existent. Perhaps with a cube or two of ice, this might be drinkable. Otherwise I would recommend avoiding this cleverly marketed but far too obstreperously flavoured dram.

Something a bit different for the peat lover

A really interesting and quite complex dram. The sherry is quite subtle but adds a new dimension. Don’t get the rough finish others have found, I love it

Hospital corridor aroma with a chili finish

Before I start I would like to say that I enjoy Islay whiskies and have tried plenty an enjoyed the vast majority. So, I tried this out of curiosity and after tasting it twice I have now given it away. I don't get any of the label flavours or aromas only the sterile antiseptic hospital corridor aroma. No seaweed or saltiness at all. The fire in the finish can best be described as chemically derived. I like the taste of chili but not as a finish in my whisky. There is nothing about this whisky which would cause me to even accept a dram of it. There is most likely a very good reason for the lack of a name of distillery on this whisky.

Wonderfully interesting and different!

I'm really enjoying this; so many flavours!

Very nice indeed

Really unexpected. Peaty with rich sherry. A long finish of lapsang souchong. I love it!

Does exactly what it says on the tin

I've not been much for peaty malts, historically. However, I do like briny whiskies and this one is fantastic.
The flavours are perfectly balanced and you really do get those notes all the way through.
I even get a fresh soil note on the back of the peat.
Worth the money, I'll definitely buy another at some point!

Ten years well spent

Excellent. Well balanced and yes peat, a bit of seaweed, sherry and oak.
Very good on a cold raw day..

complex evolving flavour

The first taste is a little sweet and mellow, but rapidly evolves in the mouth to something much more pungent and smoky. Perhaps a little lacking in the peat and iodine for my taste, but very, very palatable.

Definitely worth a try.

Worth trying

This is a must try if like me you enjoy a peaty malt .
