Surprisingly tasty. Feels like an amalgamation of a certain northern Islay malt and a southern malt from the westward one among Kildalton distilleries. However as it's a single malt, I'm gravitating towards it being from the latter.
Being an anonymous NAS malt certainly is not the most attractive of traits, but instead the price is kept very tight. I would compare it to Laphroaig 10y Cask Strength but maybe a few years younger - and it feels as if those years are certainly lacking here. Still plenty enjoyable for what it is. I would have strongly contemplated buying a full bottle if I did not have a bottle of Laph 10CS already.
