The old general bottling now replaced by individual batches – 55.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Very intense, a mixture of smoke shack and hospital hallway with added seaweed.
Palate: Strong peat, liquorish, salt, cloves, lemon and a faint hint of pineapple candy.
Finish: Very long, smoke, salt and aromatic spices.
Overall: The true essence of Islay. This uncompromising malt does not take prisoners. Extremely complex and much better than the regular 10 yo for an unbeatable price.
Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
