Finlaggan Old Reserve Reviews

It's a 3-4 star Islay style whisky

If you're not familiar with the style, it's a good introduction at a very good price point.

Try this to find out if you like smokey, peaty whisky and then move on to Lagavulin, Ardbeg, or (the best) Laphroig.

Or, if you like the style, and want a daily drinker without spending $50 a pop, definitely go for it if you can.

will buy again

Like all single malts an acquired taste, which I enjoy, the smokey, peat, fishing net bouquet, makes it quite special.
It tastes better as one gets down the bottle, will recommend and buy again

Amazing single malt @ mediocre blend price

Cracks me up that everyone gives this smoky peaty very inexpensive either top stars or nearly none. I'm delighted to have found it in my local Trader Joe's because my local liquor stores don't carry any single malt in my price range. It reminds me of the lovely Laphroaig that I cannot afford but would drink every day if I could.

Don’t buy it!

I bought this one “on sale” at our local shop.
Regretted it the moment i opened the bottle.
That chemical smell! Just afwul. And even with some water added it just kept killing my tastebuds...not good!
I returned the bottle this afternoon. The shop owner wasn’t suprised. I was not the first one complaining about it.

Bought myself i nice Glenfarclass.. :-)

Excellent value single malt with peat and wood smoke

Great value single malt. Nose: peat, charcoal, old leather couch. Palate: Peat, iodine, medicinal. Finish: Bittersweet smoke, leather.
Hard to beat in this price range.

Excellent

I believe it is one of the best single malts I have ever tasted and enjoyed. (old reserve) Truly the nectar of the gods!

Best single malt under $150! Cheers

Smokey and peet flavors and are reminiscent of an 18 year old Laphrog. Well worth the tasting. Cheers

bang for a buck

If you like smoke just go for this , it's cheap taste fine (not as complex as...) But for a daily or sipper in between it's a good choice.
