Whisky Reviews for Finlaggan Eilean Mor VM

23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.47 points

  1. Abtbernardus scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Soft smoky and peaty, with sweet fruity notes. Tasty and affordable entry-level to get acquainted with an Islay whisky. Also for the connoisseur one for the cosiness of the fire.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Smoky, peaty, sweet fruit scents. Vanilla. After a while, caramel fragrances also appear. Also charcoal. An indefinable smell surprises me with every nose. Does it look fleshy, ... or rubbery ??? Medicinal ?? Can not put a name on it.
    • Taste
      80 80
      "Pepper, slightly smoky, peat, wood, bit bitter at the end.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Long aftertaste, warm and sweet. Bitterness does cause a dry mouth.

  2. midnite scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Decent young Lagavulin (I'd wager). Bottle has improved in design but also increased in price.

    • Nose
      Slightly smoky and peat with some fruity sweetness.
    • Taste
      Comes slowly. Then suddenly a lot of smoke and dry.
    • Finish
      Mid-length. Some dry and peppery

    Taste fuller than the smell.
    • Nose
      Light truf and smoke, fruitier than the 'standard' Finlaggan. Citrus, apple, sweet too, vanilla. Not very strong. Some tobacco ash.
    • Taste
      Light salmiak, soft and smooth. Creamy. Sweet, honey, caramel, vanilla. Also some fruity, peach. Later he becomes somewhat stimulating.
    • Finish
      Now a pepper, liquorice, salmiak / lakrisal. Some peat smoke, orange, honey. Mid-length.

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Not my cuppa – full stop.
    • Nose
      The nose is a tad umami. I get mashed patatoes, hazel nuts, salted caramel, roast beef and some sweet peat. After a few moments some play-doh, a bit of sugar and a hint of dark fruit. A weird combo. But it does seem to work. I’m not yet sure whether to like it or hate it, even after nosing for 15 minutes.
    • Taste
      Ouch… the palate is a letdown. After the initial – albeit very short – burst of sweetness, it turns bitter very quickly. Loads of tannins, woodspice and peat, but nothing else. This is also fairly young, I’d say. That does not have to be bad, obviously. But this lacks complexity and balance. Quite sharp in fact.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, smoky with a hint of menthol. It leaves the mouth semi-dry.

    The wet dog in the nose may sound nasty, but I liked it. He does not seem very old, and he probably would not have seen a sherry barrel from within - if not, then not for long. ABV I can estimate just bad, since I'm probably the Tali of just in the way. For me, the whisky goes towards Bruichladdich ...
    • Nose
      In the foreground first a fruit note, melons and pears set the tone. Slightly salty. From the background, a smell pushes forward, which I can not describe at first. Something unwashed, olles, moldy. Maybe wet dog with a lot of loam on the legs. Or an old runner, who was laid out to air outside and is drenched by a rain shower ... let's see if this finds itself on the tongue.
    • Taste
      No, it does not (at first?), Here comes instead a good splash of sea water on the tongue. At first quite refreshing, then slightly brackish. Milk chocolate and vanilla bring creaminess after a while, pears and green apples provide pleasant sweetness. Nutmeg takes care that it does not get too sweet. Also some salt is to be found.
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy, a hint of smoke, a sweetness of crushed apples.
