Distribution of ratings for this:
Intro: McClelland's Islay label is whisky produced at the Bowmore distilleries on Islay. The McClelland's Islay Single Malt Whisky is listed at 5 years old.
Nose: Medicinal, moderate peat, some sea salts
Taste: good strong flavour. Like the nose, the taste is also medicinal, peaty, and salty.
Finish: there is a long finish, with the peat, especially hanging on.
Balance: For a 5 year old malt, this has a lot of character. This is thoroughly drinkable, wears well, and is definitely good enough to look forward to drinking. I would encourage those who already like Bowmore products to give this one a try. The quality is rather good, and the value for the money is exceptional.
