  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    My bottle has been opened for about 4+ years and it's about 1/3 full. Guess what, it still tastes great! Goes to show you that a heavily peated whisky at cask strength will probably be good for a while, even when mostly empty. This is not true for a low ABV fruity whisky though... Tasting this, I am beginning to wonder if there aren't some older whiskies in here.. 

    Addendum: my bottle has been opened for about 8 years ago... still terrific. Cask strength, heavily peated whisky will keep for a long, long time even when opened.

    This was very allocated here in the states. Originally I only could

    receive one bottle from Del Mar Wine.com however now it is in stock and

    is readily available to purchase. I love this Islay because it is

    powerful in the beginning and tappers off nicely to a sweet vanilla

    finish.
