Already legendary single malt. It set's standard for Islay whisky. It's sole problem - it is too popular.

Member Review Rating

Aroma: strong smoke, shoe polish, fresh tires. Reminds me Lapsang Souchong with pine needles. Light wood and vanilla tones.
Palate: good as always, my loyal friend in bars. Great wood and smoke balance. Hints of nuts and fruits.
Aftertaste: long, sweet and warm.
Comments- my longtime favorite. It's sweet, thick smoke, great balance and constant quality gives the reason to love it. But so many people loves it - I count it as minus.


The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
