Ok... drank the bottle. I have been a avid whiskey fan, and this is my first review. The fact that I upended the bottle is the only reason I am mustering the balls to finally write a review, as most of you have already done I'm sure. I have seen enough reviews to know what the format should be, and this may be a slight variation from the norm:
Nose: To be honest, I smell tequilla. Not poetic, but frank. I have also been drinking my Ardbeg Supernova 2010 as comparison,and enjoy the nose of that much more. The "tequilla" nose is the only part of this dram that disappoints as far as I am concerned.
Taste: I do enjoy the taste. Not as medicinal as Laphroaig, but crisp and clean with lemon and iodine showing.
Finish: ... I like it. Long finish of lingering peat.
Ultimatum: An enjoyable whisky. Really wanted to love this, but seems middle of the road. I suppose Talisker and Ardbeg still take the cake.
Are there any whiskeys that are a close call to the style of Talisker? Was an absolute Islay guy until 57 degrees north.
