Glenkeir is The Whisky Shop's own whisky range - and this is a vatted malt comprising whisky from Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain distilleries. This is very drinkable. Dom's review

"Nose: Oily and gloopy, a smoky steam engine, sweet pear and fluffy apple round the edges, and there's hints of rich butter pastry filled with tinned cherry and clotted cream. Palate: Snaps initially, so that an early apple note disappears under a wall of peat and pepper, which gives the green fruit at the centre a bit of a kicking. Fades away late on though, and there's a bit of a bump late on. Finish: Thankfully the peat pulls it all round in style."
