Finlaggan Old Reserve 40% alc. vol.
A mystery Islay single malt from an unnamed distillery, purported by many to be Lagavulin, which somehow seems a little unlikely to us. That said, this is a terrific dram for the money and likely to appeal to frugal peatheads.
Nose: Earthy smoky peat and salty.
Palate: Pungent peat smoke, chewy sweet Malt, Pepper, Tar and a touch of Iodine.
Finish: Long and warming, Smoky Ashes of the peat fire.
