6 Year Old Unpeated Rockside Farm Islay Barley Single Malt Scotch

Much better than the “heavily plated” one which seemed too contrived to me. — 23 days ago

10 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1815

Definitely a favourite single malt from Islay - smoky and peaty. A wonderful mid winter tipple to warm the innards. — 5 days ago

Laphroaig

PX Cask Triple Matured Scotch Whisky

Peated nose (of course!), along with a hint of dates. Peat and heat at the start, with slight notes of sea greens. Finishes with brown sugar sweetness. — 18 days ago

Caol Ila

Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The mildest of the Diageo peated whiskies I've had so far. Definitely not the campfire peat monsters of Ardbeg, or the distinct maritime peat of Talisker, or the more medicinal peat of Lagavulin... The peat here comes off as sweet and aromatic, almost like incense. The body seems to be the lightest of the lot too (comparing apples and apples), although it's hard to say without seeing them all next to each other (definitely lighter than the Ardberg and even Glen Elgin here). Palate flavours are subtle in the Caol Ila, but citrus notes come through clearly. Finishes a touch short with a sort of grassy earthy quality that I quite enjoy. Not a blockbuster whisky, yet I find it quite drinkable.

NB: Better mixed 1:1 with the Ardbeg Wee Beastie. Seems to balance out the extreme smoke of the Ardberg, drawing out lovely saline notes.
