After reading about this, I thought I would give it a try. This is labeled as a blended Scotch whisky consisting of Islay malts.

The nose is not particularly strong, with a slight note of something sweet like heather or honey. The mouthfeel is rather thin compared to some other Islay malts and is not particularly oily or viscous which I find a bit of a drawback. The taste I find slightly earthy with, like the nose, a tinge of something sweet.

The finish is perhaps to me the most interesting part of this with smoke and pepper coming on to a medium fade.

I would definitely recommend this, especially to those new to Islay malts or blend fans, or even those passionate Islay drinkers that just want a change of pace.
