FINLAGGAN






CASK STRENGTH 58%

CASK STRENGTH 58%:

a golden colour, with a nose of vanilla with a touch of spice, and on the palate vanilla, a touch of molasses, caramel with pleasant sweetness, a fruity undertone and moderate smoky  peatiness.  This one gently peated, and in spite of the alcohol strength it is a bit less intense than other editions of Finlaggan. The finish lasts about 40 seconds.  A very nicely balanced Single Malt.  3.75/5


EILEAN MOR 46%

Eilean Mor 46%: A darkish amber colour, with a slightly salty and smoky nose.   In the mouth medium smoky peat, with notes of iodine, oilve oil and a pleasant sweetness, wt a finish of 40 seconds.  3.75/5

 

OLD RESERVE 40%

Old Reserve 40%: a dark amber colour, with a nose that is salty and smoky with an ozonic undertone.  On the palate it is peppery, with lots of tar, some iodine and licorice, with woods and a malty sweetness that balances out the whole beautifully.  This is a very peaty beast, and maybe a touch too one-sided at times,  especially towards the end, and it has a finish of 50 seconds.  A beautiful fine Single Malt.  4.25/5
