Finlaggan Eilean Mor

A 2015 addition to the Finlaggan range, named Eilean Mor (those of you that know about Islay's geography will be familiar with that name). This expression has been bottled at a slightly higher strength than other Finlaggan release (not including the Cask Strength, of course). The whisky comes from an undisclosed distillery on Islay - it's a closely guarded secret as to which one...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Salty sea breeze and a touch of TCP.

Palate Well-peated and rather intense. Spicy hints of black pepper.

Finish A long finish of drying peat smoke.

Reviews for Finlaggan Eilean Mor
Nice, peaty and good price/performance ratio
Very nice whisky for a very good price. Not quite popular as Old Reserve of this brand, which is a good thing (few review, few people buy it - good for me).
Opens nicely with a teaspoon of water, can be compared to Laphroaig 10 then. Perfect balance of quality and price.
Original Peaty is too watery, this has nice pepper and salt notes with a hint of fruits as a background of heavy peat and smoke.
Ledaig 10 is more balanced, sure, as well as Port Charlotte, but this is priced below Talisker 10 and to my opinion, it’s much much nicer (with that hint of water)

eilean mor
nice copper colour,not to much colour added.Smoke,burning leaves and a medicinal touch on the nose.
With a little water it opens up nicely with a sea salt opening and some pepper.
Even if Finlaggan does not own his own distillery,and therefore it has to rely on some probably very well known
malts from Islay a very decent malt for a nice price.
