Whisky Reviews for Finlaggan Sherry Finish VM

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.18 points

  1. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    the 46% and the sherry keg did the finlaggan very well; Although no complexity monster but the flavors that are there harmonize very well with each other. Nice tasty
    • Nose
      clear smoke; sweet raisins; dark, strained bacon; Oak and decence in the background chocolate; slightly maritime note; sweet dark fruits and berries; Over time, the smoke disappears and makes room for the sweetness
    • Taste
      nice sweet; You can tell the sherry to the whisky; slightly dry and a light, pleasant tingle; less smoke than the nose suggests; apricots;
    • Finish
      short to medium length; here again clearer smoke; Oak that lingers beautifully on the palate, getting dry; again a very nice sweet from the sherry

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    He is (after the lousy Old Reserve & and the tasty port) then really delicious, acts like a Lagavulin DE with the handbrake on.
