Whisky Reviews for Finlaggan Cask Strength VM

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky that reminds me of Lagavulin, but obviously I cannot be certain about that.
    • Nose
      Soot, asphalt and dried grasses with a good dose of butane gas precede hints of citrus fruit, young apples and some almond paste. This nose also shows a bit of salt and a lovely dose of peat. Unmistakably Islay.
    • Taste
      It is very smoky, spicy and surprisingly sweet on the palate. Oh, boy, this is quite a spicy fellow. I’m sure the ABV has something to do with that as well. I get all warm inside. Apples, grapefruit and lime go hand in glove with salt, ginger, liquorice and some pepper. Honey joins in, but does not stand a chance against the overwhelming saltiness. This goes from sweet to salt to very brackish and it works like a charm.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, smoky and nicely warming.

    Catsle Finlaggan is near to Caol Ila distillery.
