Smoky with brief notes from me. Not as peaty as you would expect from the western isles. Had a tour of this distillery some years ago on the Isle of Skye which is the spiritual home of the Clan Donald ie McDonald. Probably prefer the peaty styles of Lagavulin and Laphroig. — 18 days ago
Excellent Islay malt. Lovely. warm color. Medium peatiness with creamy and fruity notes. Lingering spice and smoke. — 4 years ago
Excellent smooth drinking and favorable. — 15 days ago
Very peaty! I would have guessed, if I were blindfolded, that it was a Laphroaig. — 4 years ago
How does anyone not hoard (regular) Sazerac at ~$25?!
Incredibly smooth, great sweet note to the finish. Again, why haven't I not been buying this for years...?
(BTW Kirkland Bourbon at $30 is worth the price of admission, earthy oak note on the palate is quite similar to Buffalo Trace.)
