This is a unique offering from Islay, no peat, but a wonderfully full bodied and complex malt with some hints of sea salt and brine mixed with sherry. It's very drinkable even without water and has a lovely long finish. A great whisky for a rainy day.

92!! Well, horses for courses I guess :-) Great all-rounder, just not sure it offers enough to break the 85 point mark for me.

I like this whisky and I actually had a sample of it two weeks ago. Even though it is a good and very much value-for-money, I wouldn't rate it more than 85 either. For me it takets more to reach the 90-ties, but thats me...

I take cost into account with my whiskies, and for it's price range this was some damn fine stuff. I could for sure find a whisky twice as old in some fancy bottle for 5 or 6 times the price, but the fact that I can buy this with my monthly whisky budget makes me really happy. That and the smell and finish really just did something for me. Also Ralfy gave it a 91... (but that's Ralfy)

Indeed it's very affordable. Here in Miami goes for around $45-$50. It's crafted: 46.3% abv, non-chilled filtered, natural color, Great flavor, long finish. A great deal indeed!
